Baseball: 2 more Giants pitchers involved in baseball gambling

posted on October 22, 2015

The Yomiuri Giants professional baseball team was dealt another blow on Wednesday as Nippon Professional Baseball said two more Yomiuri Giants pitchers had bet on baseball games.

The announcement that Shoki Kasahara, 24, and Ryuya Matsumoto, 22, had gambled on baseball games follows the shocking revelation on Oct. 5 that 32-year-old fellow Giants pitcher Satoshi Fukuda had engaged in gambling. Betting on baseball games in Japan is illegal.

Kasahara bet on 10 professional baseball games between April and October last year, in addition to another 10-20 games. He also gambled on senior high school baseball games between April and August last year, the panel said.
