• Former Cardinals scout chief facing jail over Astros hack


    LOS ANGELES: The former director of scouting at the St. Louis Cardinals faces a possible prison sentence and a heavy fine after pleading guilty to hacking computers belonging to the rival Houston Astros, a justice department statement said on Friday (Saturday in Manila). Chris Correa entered his guilty plea to all counts during a federal court hearing in Houston, where he had been charged with five counts of unauthorized access of a protected computer. Prosecutors said Correa, who worked for the Cardinals from 2009 up until July last year, had accessed an Astros database known as Ground Control, which contained an array of data including scouting reports, statistics and contract information.
