The former scouting director of the St Louis Cardinals baseball club has admitted he illegally poked around in the player database of a Major League Baseball rival
Chris Correa pleaded guilty on Friday at a Houston federal court to five counts of unauthorized access to a computer stemming from a 2013 infiltration of the email accounts and scouting database of the Houston Astros.
It seems that one of his scouts left St. Louis and went to the Astros. Once there, the scout used the same password he had used at St. Louis. Our Hero guessed that password, starting his date with Clud Fed.Each of the counts carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and $250,000 fine.
It's idiots, all the way down.
