The Houston Astros saw a sign Friday they couldn't steal.

A plane carrying a "Houston Asterisks" banner flew over Oakland Coliseum prior to a game between the Astros and the Oakland Athletics.

These fans needed to get creative to taunt the Astros because spectators aren't allowed in ballparks this season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

MLB punished Houston in January for stealing signs electronically in 2017 - the year the team won the World Series - and parts of 2018. Former Astros manager AJ Hinch and ex-general manager Jeff Luhnow were suspended and subsequently fired due to their roles in the scandal, while the team also lost its first- and second-round draft picks in 2020 and 2021, and received a $5-million fine.
