Cardinals chief blames ‘roguish behavior’
St. Louis Cardinals Chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. blamed “roguish behavior” for the team’s involvement in the alleged hacking of the Houston Astros’ player personnel database.
DeWitt said the team was still investigating the matter but said no more than a handful of individuals in an operation that numbers in the hundreds was responsible.
“I can’t come up with a reason for it,” DeWitt said. It goes against everything we stand for. We don’t know who did what here.”
Meanwhile, Astros General Manager Jeff Luhnow said he updated his passwords and the notion that poor password protection was to blame for the database hack is “absolutely false.”
