Given the recent checkered history of the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox, conspiracy theories can easily sprout from even the most innocuous circumstances.

during Wednesday night Game 5 of the American League Championship Series, the umpires stopped play before the end of the fifth inning and began pointing to the outfield – where a bright light could be seen coming through the wall of the outfield.

At that point in the game, the Astros had a 1–0 lead and starter Framber Valdez did not allow a baserunner in the first four innings.


After a while, the light disappeared and the game resumed.

It looked like the lights were coming from Fenway Park’s bleacher bar, located behind the wall in the center area.

WFXT reporter Wale Aliu, who was covering the game from the bar, said another station’s lighting equipment – ​​pointing to the ground from within the bar – was the culprit.

“There was something in the wall in center field. It looked like a light or whatever. Somebody saw it in the dugout,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said after the game.

“It wasn’t a big deal, but just to let them know he was there. I don’t know if the hitter was able to see it, whatever.”
