NEW YORK (AP) - Major League Baseball is urging a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit by fantasy contestants over sign stealing by the Houston Astros. MLB says attempts at cheating are part of sports. Five men have sued MLB, MLB Advanced Media, the Astros and the Boston Red Sox in federal court in Manhattan. Among their claims are fraud, violation of consumer-protection laws and negligence. The five say they participated in DraftKings fantasy baseball contests.
