Chris Correa, the former director of scouting for the St. Louis Cardinals, reportedly gained unauthorized access to the Houston Astros’ online system, Ground Control, in 2013 and 2014. He stole a plethora of information, such as trade targets, proposals, and prospect rankings and draft evaluations. At the time of the leak, it was not known that the Cardinals were behind the hacking, but in 2015, the Cardinals came under fire by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for allegedly perpetrating the hack and leaking the documents. Those allegations ended up being true; Correa was sentenced to 46 months in prison, forced to pay a fine of roughly $300K, and handed a lifetime ban from baseball.Read more "Major League Baseball Botched the Cardinals Hacking Case in a Huge Way"
