An agent for numerous minor and Major League Baseball players has been fired by his agency and has been suspended by the players’ union for allegedly filming his clients while they were taking showers.
Jason Wood, who was the president of baseball at Career Sports Entertainment, has been let go by the company for which he had worked since April, when CSE acquired the agency he founded.
A player who chose not to be identified recently took a shower at Wood’s home, according to the FanRag Sports report, and found a camera. The player fired Wood after a confrontation, and there is an investigation into him allegedly filming numerous others.
Wood, who was based in St. Louis, represented Red Sox star Andrew Benintendi as well as former Yankee David Phelps and the Rays’ Jake Odorizzi, among others, according to Sports Business Daily.
Before CSE bought his business, Wood had worked for Arland Sports, which he established in 2006.
