Pete Rose was an All-Star in each of these positions🤯🔥 MLB

“Ippei has been stealing money from my account and telling lies,” said the Dodgers two-way superstar. “Last weekend in Korea, the media reached out to my camp inquiring about my potential involvement in sports betting. Ippei never revealed to me that there was this media inquiry. He told the media that I — on behalf of a friend — paid off a debt. Upon further questioning, it was revealed that it was actually, in fact, Ippei who was in debt and told my representatives I was paying off those debts. All of this has been a complete lie.”  

Reds icon Pete Rose takes shot at Shohei Ohtani over the illgeal gambling allegations surrounding his former interpreter Ippei Mizuhara

Last week, Ohtani’s lawyers accused Mizuhara of committing a “massive theft” against their client in connection to an illegal bookmaking operation run by Mathew Bowyer, multiple sources told ESPN. He reportedly ran up debts with the Californian bookmaker believed to be at least $4.5 million. Those bets were allegedly placed on international football, but not on baseball. On Thursday, the IRS confirmed that Mizuhara and Bowyer are under criminal investigation. The following day, the MLB’s Department of Investigations also began a “formal process investigating the matter.”

Over the past few days, there has been a lot of speculation that Ohtani himself may have been involved in the gambling scandal. Those rumors are unlikely to go away after this press conference, though, as he didn’t take any questions from reporters or explain how Mizuhara gained access to his bank account. Three-time World Series champion Pete Rose addressed the issue in a video that has gone viral on X. “Well, back in the 70s and 80s, I wish I had an interpreter, I’d be scot-free,” he said.

In 1989, Rose was penalized with permanent ineligibility from baseball following accusations that he bet on the sport while playing for and managing the Cincinnati Reds. That means he is banned for consideration for the Hall of Fame despite being the all-time MLB leader in hits.
