It was a widespread problem about a year ago. I posted links to various discussion forums and blogs about it last summer.
However, a member of this board who works for MLB assured me that they've really cleaned things up since then. Maybe they have.
To clarify, they autorenewed my credit card in '06. When I realized that they had done so, I called and asked for a refund (after spending hours and hours and hours on hold).
The person on the phone said he'd look into it, but couldn't promise anything, even though I had never used the service in '06.
Once I heard that I got on the phone with my credit card company, which did an investigation and then reversed the charges.
