A member of the New York Mets staff accidentally emailed general manager Sandy Alderson’s credit card information to nearly all of its New York media contacts. The information included not only the credit card number, but the expiration date and security code.
According to ESPN.com, the email was intended to be sent to a Broadway connection in order to secure tickets to a show this weekend.
One reporter who received the email tweeted the following:
Mets accidentally sent out a group e-mail with Alderson’s credit card info … I just called Boras and bought the Mets a new SS.

Definitely a humorous incident, but a great lesson in always checking exactly who is included in that send to box
