Why can’t baseball players & coaches communicate through headsets like the NFL instead of using hand signs?

Is baseball to blame that teams are still using something as easy to steal as hand signs? Why can’t they get with the times and use headsets to get their message across, so that all these sign stealing could disappear?

    Baseball existed for 82 years before they let Black Person Pioneer Jackie Robinson suited up for the Brooklyn Dodgers. So maybe 82 years from now they will implement some modern stuff

    Signs need to.go from the catcher to the pitcher. Those are the ones being stolen. Just how is the catcher supposed to speak so the pitcher can hear in his earpiece without the batter hearing? He's standing right there.

      Oh yeah, he could hear what is being said on an earpiece but he can’t see hand signal?

    MLB is working on something similar, a watch-like instrument on the catcher's and pitcher's wrists that will transmit and recieve signals.
