South Korea Fines MLB Pitcher Over Gambling
New St. Louis Cardinals Player Gambled In Macau
Newly-signed St. Louis Cardinals reliever Seung Hwan Oh has been fined $8,000 by South Korea for gambling in Macau, according to a report from the Associated Press.
The country also has punished ex-Chicago Cubs pitcher Lim Chang-yong, who was Oh’s teammate with the Samsung Lions of the South Korean baseball league. Both men were charged with betting $33,000 each at Macau casinos in 2014, which is a violation of South Korean law.
According to the report, South Koreans are not allowed to bet large sums anywhere else besides the one casino in the country that allows locals to play. Other South Korean casinos are only for tourists.
Both pitchers had previously been given suspensions by the Korean Baseball Organization.
The Cardinals earlier this month signed Oh to a one-year deal.
