Shohei Ohtani to Deliver Statement, Decline Questions

Shohei Ohtani’s Legal Statement: Can MLB Avoid a Scandal through Illegal Gambling Apps?

On Monday, Shohei Ohtani announced that he would be available to reporters at 5:45 p.m. ET to read a statement prepared by his lawyers and PR specialists. However, it appears that “available” in his case means that he will not be answering any questions. The statement is expected to provide details on the gambling activities of his former interpreter, which took place in California, where gambling is illegal.

This story is being closely followed because it revolves around illegal gambling rather than baseball. The unique quality of Ohtani’s situation lies in the fact that the gambling activities of his former interpreter occurred in California, where gambling is illegal. This raises questions about whether other players in different sports may also be involved in similar activities through legal gambling apps. The handling of Ohtani’s situation by MLB could provide insight into how to avoid potential scandals involving high-profile players in the future.
