On Wednesday, a sports/news agency called CSE Talent reportedly fired the leader of their baseball division, Jason Wood, after they said he failed to uphold the "moral and ethical standards" of the company.
So what was Wood's alleged failing? Well, it's right there in the headline. One of his clients (who asked to remain unnamed) recently found a camera recording him in Wood's shower while he was using it. After that alarming discovery he confronted the agent and fired him on the spot.
The news was first reported by FanRag Sports, who relayed that the agent was being investigated by the baseball player's union after filming a number of clients while they showered. FanRag reports that several sources suggested that other players had been recorded. Wood previously represented Boston's Andrew Benintendi, Tampa's Jake Odorizzi, and Seattle's David Phelps, as well as a number of prospects, including: Pittsburgh's Mitch Keller, Colorado's Riley Pint, and Atlanta's Joey Wentz.
CSE released a statement following their decision to fire Wood.
"For over 32 years, CSE Talent has prided itself on our moral and ethical standards and have built a solid reputation within the industry. We take pride in working with people who represent these values," the company's president, Danny Martoe, said. "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."
