There's a new development in the Rockies ticket debachle from last week. The F.B.I has now opened an investigation to see if computer hackers may have been to blame for problems with online sales.

In the first 90 minutes of online ticket sales last week, more than 8 million fans logged on for a chance to score world series tickets in Denver, crashing the server.

The team claims a malicious attack brought down the ticket buying system. The F.B.I is looking into the possible internet compromise, which may have happened in Irvine, California. Major League Baseball claims the system was simply overloaded and no foul play was involved.
