Ex-Cardinal Exec Jailed For Hacking Astros

Christopher Correa gets 46 months for unlawful access of rival's database and downloading confidential details.

Christopher Correa, former scouting director of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball franchise, is sentenced to 46 months in prison for hacking the database of the rival Houston Astros, says an Associated Press report (via ESPN). The hacking occurred between 2013 and 2014 and reportedly cost the Astros about $1.7 million.

FBI says Correa gained access into the Astros network, based on an ex-Cardinals employee’s password, who left to join the rival club. It is unconfirmed whether this refers to Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow, who previously worked for the Cardinals. 

According to prosecutors, Correa downloaded confidential information on players and the team, including lists of eligible players, trade discussions, player evaluations, and an incomplete 2014 team draft board.

Correa, also faced with a fine of $279,038, was fired last year. “I violated my values and it was wrong…I behaved shamefully,” he said in court.
