NEW YORK, April 28 (UPI) -- A careless New York Yankees employee accidentally e-mailed an attachment with contact information for hundreds of season ticket holders, officials say.

Chief Operating Officer Lonn Trost said the spreadsheet did not include Social Security numbers or credit card information, the New York Post reported. In an e-mail to ticket holders Wednesday night, he said the spreadsheet listed names, home addresses and information like e-mail addresses and fax numbers.

The blunder occurred Monday. Deadspin, a sports blog, said renters of luxury boxes and holders of tickets in the front rows in the infield were not on the list.

The spreadsheet was sent as an attachment to an e-mail sent to holders of season tickets.

The Yankees issued an apology and said the team had tightened internal controls to prevent similar errors. But Brett Matisak of Lincoln Park, N.J., who bought a 12-game package in the bleachers, is not satisfied.

"The team certainly needs to offer us some sort of compensation, whether it's a free game or a couple of games, memorabilia, something," he told the Post.
