Seventeen ex-MLB scouts are suing the league, its 30 teams and Commissioner Rob Manfred, saying they were discriminated against because of their age from 2020 to '22.

The Associated Press reported the news on the lawsuit, which was filed in U.S. District Court in Denver.

The scouts, who range in age from 55 to 71 years old, state that MLB and its teams "have acted to prevent the reemployment of older scouts or refused the reemployment of older scouts."

They also allege that the league and its teams committed violations of the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 as well as laws in 11 states and New York City, per the AP.
