Major League Baseball Agent Fired For Filming Players While They Showered

A scandal is breaking out in the Major League Baseball world because of an agent.

Jason Wood, the president of baseball for the agency CSE, was just suspended by the player’s union. Why? FanRag reports that it’s because Wood allegedly filmed many baseball players. In one circumstance, he specifically did it while the player showered in his St. Louis home.

In addition, Jason Wood has also been fired from his agency because of these stories.

“For over 32 years, CSE Talent has prided itself on our moral and ethical standards and have built a solid reputation within the industry,” said CSE president Danny Martoe in a statement. “It’s unfortunate that CSE Talent aligned itself with someone who didn’t uphold these same standards and therefore we chose to terminate with cause Wood’s employment.”

Despite all this, Woods is adamant in saying that he hasn’t done anything and that these allegations are false.

While we don’t know why the baseball players were showering in Woods’s home to begin with, we know that there are several, unshared, names attached to these allegations.

One player, who remained anonymous, said that he found the camera while he was showering. He says that he then confronted Wood, and immediately fired him as his agent.

Before all this, Jason Wood was the agent of some notable players like the Boston Red Sox’s Andrew Benintendi, the Seattle Mariners’ David Phelps and the Atlanta Braves’ Joey Wentz.

Now, he is unable to represent any players and, depending of the results of the investigation, he could lose his accreditation as an agent.

With all the hate in the world, it’s nice to see the love and compassion get a shot in the spotlight.

A video is going viral of a gay couple getting engaged to wondrous applause.

Ty Fleming and Tyler Garrison (Yes, they’re Ty and Ty), were at the Washington Nationals versus Pittsburgh Pirates game at Nationals Park.

While Fleming was busy getting a prize his boyfriend Garrison was getting down on one knee. The rest went beautifully as the crowd happily cheered for the two boys, including Washington Nationals mascot Screech.

Now, question is what joyous event can the upcoming Nationals versus Cubs game give us?

Oakland A's Outfielder Gets Two-Game Ban After Anti-Gay Slur

Matt Joyce, outfielder for the Oakland Athletics, has been put on a two-game ban after shouting an anti-gay slur to a fan who yelled at him as he entered the dugout. After hitting a hard grounder during the eighth inning of a game against the Los Angeles Angels, first baseman CJ Cron stopped the ball, which ignited a verbal feud between Joyce and Cron.

Joyce told the Associated Press:

It’s just one of those things that fans kind of get into the game. Obviously, we’re pretty frustrated on our side and I had just hit a ball hard and had Cron make a good play. I was walking back to the dugout and just had a fan yell some vulgar and obscene words. For me it just wasn’t the right time to say some stuff like that. I fired back and obviously as soon as you fire back you regret saying anything, because it’s just not worth it. I was walking back to the dugout and just had a fan yell some vulgar and obscene words. For me it just wasn’t the right time to say some stuff like that. I fired back and obviously as soon as you fire back you regret saying anything, because it’s just not worth it.

Joyce has since received a two-game ban by Major League Baseball. His lost salary of $54,000 during the two games will be donated to PFLAG, in solidarity with the LGBT community.

Joyce has also issued public apologies and has even taken to Twitter to demonstrate his regret in using the anti-gay speech.

That’ll teach him to be an Oakland A—hole.
