Gambling controversy interpreter falsified credentials

Shohei Ohtani’s former interpreter, Ippei Mizuhara, who has been accused of illegal sports gambling and theft, falsified his educational background, according to shocking reports.

Mizuhara, who was famously known as the dedicated interpreter, close friend, and manager of Major League Baseball’s “superstar” Ohtani, was fired by the Dodgers shortly after the team’s season opener in Seoul on Sept. 20. Mizuhara apologized to the Dodgers players in the clubhouse after the game, saying, “I have a gambling addiction problem, which will be revealed soon,” and the team immediately fired him.

When ESPN broke the story, Mizuhara first said that “Ohtani knew about the gambling and told him not to gamble again and paid off his debts,” then changed his story the next day to say that “Ohtani had no knowledge of it.”

The MLB office is now investigating both Ohtani and Mizuhara.

Ohtani returned to the United States after the opening two games in Seoul, but has yet to comment on the situation.

Mizuhara, who first met Ohtani when he played for the Nippon Ham Fighters, has always been close to Ohtani since he played for the Los Angeles Angels. 바카라사이트 And when Ohtani moved to the Dodgers, Mizuhara moved with him. So it came as a huge shock to learn that Mizuhara, who was more than just a teammate, was actually an illegal sports betting addict and had access to Otani’s account. In his home country of Japan, it was such a big deal that broadcast channels covered it as breaking news.

It was also embarrassing for Ohtani. While his defense attorneys claimed that he was the victim of a large-scale theft, if it’s true that he knew about Mizuhara’s illegal sports betting and that he personally sent money to pay off his debts, he could be labeled as an accomplice. It’s possible that Ohtani could be disciplined.

Meanwhile, there are also reports that Mizuhara falsified his educational background. Born in Hokkaido, Japan, Mizuhara moved to California at the age of 6 with his father, a sushi chef. He reportedly graduated from high school and college in California. He graduated from the University of California, Riverside, a prestigious state university in Riverside, a city near Los Angeles.

However, local L.A. media outlet NBCLA reported that “Mizuhara never attended the university.

He forged his academic credentials.” The Japanese newspaper Weekly Bunchun also reported, “We sent an inquiry to the public relations representative of the University of California, Riverside. ‘There is no record that a student named Ippei Mizuhara attended our school,’ the person in charge replied,” the Weekly reported on March 23. Mizuhara had lied about his college education.

After the shocking news about Mizuhara was made public in media reports and the Dodgers fired him, Ohtani removed him from his personal social media followers and deleted all photos of him on social media after returning to the United States.

After playing the opening two games of the series in Seoul as normal, Ohtani returned to the U.S. and was seen arriving at the LA airport with his wife, Mamiko Tanaka, smiling. 토토사이트 순위 While he does not appear to be mentally shaken to the point where he is unable to function, it appears that he has entered into a “cleanup” process, meaning a complete separation from Mizuhara.
