Facebook pages of Yankees, Cubs, other MLB teams hacked
The Yankees' page had an item about Derek Jeter having a sex change
Pages of the Marlins, Padres, Nationals, Giants and White Sox were also hacked
The pages have since been restored; MLB is trying to figure what happened
On the Yankees official news feed Thursday, there was a false item about Derek Jeter undergoing a sex change. The Cubs' page contained an expletive directed at longtime Cubs fan and actor Bill Murray. The posts were removed shortly after appearing.
MLB released a statement saying "for a brief moment today, a few MLB Club Facebook accounts were hacked and inappropriate material was briefly on display." The league also said it is working with Facebook and legal authorities to determine what happened.
