HOUSTON , TX – Major League Baseball Commissioner, Rob Manfred, stepping into the batter’s box by speaking out over the recent cyber attack on our beloved Houston Astros by the St. Louis Cardinals.

Manfred says, “What has been reported, and we knew about it well in advance of the report, is there is an ongoing investigation with respect to an unauthorized entry into Houston’s system. To assume that that investigation is going to produce a particular result with respect to the Cardinals, let alone to jump to the use of a word like cyber attack, I just think that we don’t know that those are the facts yet. There is an ongoing investigation. We’ve been fully cooperative. Obviously, any allegation like this, no matter how serious it turns out to be, is of great concern to us. But it’s just too early to speculate on what the facts are going to turn out to be and what action, if any, is necessary.”

“There is an on going investigation and it’s just to early to tell what the facts are going to be and what action if any is necessary.” – MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred

Meantime, Cardinal’s General Manager John Mozeliak says, “We are committed to finding out what happened. To the extent we can substantiate that these allegations have merit, we will take appropriate action against anyone involved.”
