Ohtani ends his silence and opens his mouth Announcement of direct position regarding ‘formal interpreter illegal gambling’

LA Dodgers Shohei Otani and interpreter Ippei Mizuhara are having a conversation during the first game of the LA Dodgers vs. San Diego Padres, the official opening game of the MLB, at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the afternoon of the 20th.

Shohei Otani (30, LA Dodgers), who has remained silent regarding the theft and illegal gambling charges against Ippei Mizuhara, who was in charge of his interpretation and management, finally opens up.

According to ESPN on the 25th (Korean time), Otani decided to announce his position regarding this incident to reporters on the 26th.

Mizuhara’s illegal gambling was revealed through a foreign media report on the 21st. Mizuhara recently got involved in illegal gambling, stealing Otani’s funds in the process. The amount of the theft is reported to be at least $4.5 million (approximately 6 billion won).

Mizuhara and Otani have been in a relationship since their days playing for the Nippon Ham Fighters of the Japanese professional baseball team. After Ohtani entered the major league in 2018, he took on the role of dedicated interpreter and followed him around like a shadow. 파워볼사이트

However, when Mizuhara squandered his money on illegal gambling, he even touched Otani’s money to settle the debt, and when this fact was revealed, he was fired from the Dodgers team on the 21st, during the Major League Seoul Series.

Although Mizuhara acknowledged his illegal gambling charges, he also caused controversy by stating to the media that Otani had sent money directly to a gambler to pay off his $4.5 million gambling debt.

However, when Otani’s side strongly objected, saying that Otani was a victim of Mizuhara’s theft, Mizuhara also retracted his statement, saying, “Ohtani had no idea and did not send the money,” raising suspicions. If Mizuhara bet on a baseball game and Ohtani knew about it, Ohtani would be banned from playing for a year. Currently, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service is also investigating the Mizuhara incident, and the Major League Baseball Secretariat is also separately collecting and investigating related information. 온라인 슬롯
