Back in January, we wrote about the ex-Cardinals Scouting Director pleading guilty to hacking the Houston Astros database. Now, this week, Christopher Correa, former scouting director and director of baseball development, was sentenced to 46 months in prison for unlawfully accessing computers and e-mails of the Houston Astros. Correa admitted to accessing a protected computer and using the passwords of former Cardinals employees who moved to the Astros. Correa accessed the Astros’ database known as “Ground Control” to view private communications about prospective baseball players. The database included contract information, scouting reports and other proprietary analyses of every player in Major League Baseball. Correa also accessed information weekly Astros’ scouting digests, draft strategies and notes about trade discussions. Correa must also pay $279,038 in restitution to the Astros. Each of the five counts had the potential for 5 years in prison, but the prosecutors agreed to allow Correa to serve the time concurrently.
