There's no hacking in baseball. One team is learning that lesson the hard way.
FOX's Chris Hoenig reports:
Major League Baseball has ordered the St. Louis Cardinals to send their first two picks in this year's draft, as well as $2-million in cash to the Houston Astros as punishment for a former St. Louis baseball operations employee's hacking of the Astros' scouting database.
Christopher Correa is also banned from the sport. He's currently serving a 46-month prison sentence after pleading guilty to five criminal counts in connection with the case:
(Magidson) "When you commit unauthorized access of computer information that belongs to companies or organizations or entities and use it for commercial purpose to basically steal their property or learn what they're doing, that's a serious federal crime."
U.S. attorney Kenneth Magidson. Correa admitted to accessing the Astros database in 2014 and 2015. He was also ordered to pay a more than quarter-million dollar fine.
