What Was the Biggest Sports Scandal of All Time?
Recently, the FBI and Justice Department announced their investigation into Major League Baseball’s St. Louis Cardinals. According to the announcement, evidence suggests that officials from the Cardinals may have hacked into the private computer networks of the Houston Astros, gaining unauthorized access to confidential information and trade secrets like scouting reports, player evaluations and trade details, among other information.
