Police Investigating Match-Fixing Claims From Asian Baseball Series
Published November 25, 2013
NOT TAKING ACTION: The CNA reported Chinese Professional Baseball League Commissioner Hwang Jenn-tai "acknowledged that he did not address a game-fixing attempt in the Asia Series immediately after being informed of the matter last week." Hwang said that "he did not do anything about the alleged attempt to throw a semi-final game in the recently concluded Asia Series in Taichung until the matter was brought to light in a report by an Australian newspaper." The CPBL said that "it was informed of the attempt before the Nov. 18 semi-final game." The CPBL said that its staff "needed to confirm the matter with Blazynski before reporting it to Hwang." However, the CPBL said that its staff "forgot to report the incident to Hwang, who acknowledged that he had failed to follow up even after he was informed," which he admitted was a "grave mistake" (CNA, 11/24).
