MLB Umpire Pat Hoberg Disciplined for Gambling Scandal: A New Sports Betting Controversy Emerges

After what happened with the Venezuelan Tucupita Marcano, a new sports betting scandal has appeared on the MLB planet in recent hours.

Indeed, ESPN revealed that the body that governs the best league in the world sanctioned umpire Pat Hoberg for violating Rule 21 and participating in games of chance apparently linked to baseball.

Of course, sources consulted by the aforementioned media added that Hoberg denied having bet on baseball, so he would be appealing the punishment, since if the gambling activities are linked to other disciplines, the referee would not have to be banned from working in MLB. .

Of course, the 37-year-old umpire has not yet participated in any 2024 match, so it is thought that the bets placed had to do with baseball, which entails a full season of suspension as long as he has not participated in the match on who committed the crime.

But if he had been the protagonist of bets in games in which he worked, Pat Hoberg, famous for saying present perfectly (without calling any pitch wrong) in Game 2 of the last World Series, would be banned for life, as and as established by the aforementioned MLB regulations. Even under that scenario, Tucupita Marcano, a utility player with three years of experience in the Major Leagues, was banned forever.
