ST. LOUIS (KTVI) - Amid allegations of hacking into a former division rival's computer network for secured baseball data, the St. Louis Cardinals have obtained legal help to conduct an internal investigation.

In a statement, Cardinals Chairman and CEO Bill DeWitt Jr. said he is committed to getting to the bottom of things, “and if anyone within our organization is determined to be involved in anything inappropriate, they will be held accountable.”

Team general manager John Mozeliak said he and DeWitt reached out to attorney Jim Martin of the Dowd Bennett law firm shortly after learning about the allegations several months ago. Martin and the firm are helping the club to provide all documents and possible evidence requested by federal investigators.
