Ohtani denies sports betting and expresses shock over interpreter stealing money

Shohei Ohtani, the star player for the Los Angeles Dodgers, has denied allegations of betting on sports and accused his former interpreter, Ippei Mizuhara, of stealing money from him and spreading falsehoods. Ohtani spoke at a news conference at Dodger Stadium, expressing shock and sadness that someone he trusted would betray him in such a way.

According to an MLB source, MLB investigators have been in contact with federal prosecutors regarding the case. They are continuing their investigation independently and have not shared any information with MLB yet. Ohtani emphasized that he has never placed bets on baseball or any other sports, never asked anyone to do so on his behalf, and never used a bookmaker to place bets or assist in betting for others.

During the news conference, Ohtani referred to a document in front of him as he addressed the media. He stated that Mizuhara had been taking money from his account and spreading falsehoods. Ohtani did not take any questions during the news conference.

Mizuhara was fired by the Dodgers after reports surfaced about his alleged ties to an illegal bookmaker and debts exceeding $1 million. The situation involving Mizuhara has caused a stir in the baseball world, and MLB officials are conducting a thorough investigation into the matter.
