Nippon Professional Baseball commissioner Katsuhiko Kumazaki on Thursday declined comments regarding a recent proposal by lawmakers to make professional baseball the centerpiece of a new lottery.

“I am aware of media reports but I have received no concrete or formal contact, and at this time, I am not in a situation that I can comment,” said Kumazaki.
