Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) - A man wearing a Houston Astros media credential was removed from the camera bay of American League Division Series Game 3 against the Cleveland Indians, Andy Baskin of 92.3 the Fan reported Tuesday.

That report comes on the back of report from Metro USA saying man claiming to be an Astros employee was removed from a media-credentialed area near the Boston Red Sox dugout during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series.

The man was seen to have a small camera and was texting frequently before being asked to leave, and another Astros employee intervened, saying the man was authorized to be in the area.

The Metro USA report noted that MLB security had been warned about the man because of ‘suspicious activity’ in the ALDS against the Indians.

Neither the Red Sox or Indians would comment on the matter, but an Astros representative did not deny wrongdoing in several e-mails to Metro.
