Mets strike back at ex-exec's discrimination suit

NEW YORK (AP) The New York Mets say a former top team executive was fired for legitimate business reasons despite her allegations she lost her job because she had a child without being married.

Team Chief Operating Officer Jeffrey Wilpon made his argument on the club's behalf in court papers filed Friday in federal court in Brooklyn.

Leigh Castergine sued Wilpon and the club earlier this year. She sought unspecified damages, saying she was fired after enduring insults and humiliation. Her lawsuit said Wilpon told senior executives he was "morally opposed" to her having a baby while unmarried.
