Recently, the fact that pitcher Hyun-wook Jung and catcher Kwon Ki-young, who played for the Doosan Bears, bet on Sports Toto raised controversy.
KBO emphasized, “Some players have recently committed cheating such as illegal internet gambling. This is a serious issue that could threaten the foundation of the league.”
He added, “KBO plans to subdivide the sanction criteria and grounds and clarify it in the regulations,” he added.
KBO also said, “In connection with the Korea Baseball Softball Association, we plan to ensure that Amaya baseball players continue to receive sports ethics training from before joining a professional.” We will provide additional on-site training.”
