Cheating Anecdote    

From the Toronto Sun:

"Dennis Eckersley was on the mound for the A's [against the Blue Jays in Game 5 of the ALCS].

The night before, a clubhouse attendant from Dunedin, helping with the laundry, found an emery board in Eckersley's glove.

When Eckersley finished his warm-up, and with the A's leading 4-2, Gaston approached plate ump Rick Reed asking him to check the closer's glove.

Crew chief Davey Phillips arrived and checked Eckersley's glove. Finding nothing, he returned to Gaston, who claimed Eck put something down his pants.

'I can't ask him to pull down his pants in front of 50,000 people,' Phillips said.

When Eckersley struck out Junior Felix to end the game, A's catcher Terry Steinbach gave the Jays dugout the finger.

It wasn't inspected, either."

Anyone else know any good cheating stories?
