Sports minister Hiroshi Hase said Friday he is concerned that there are more players involved in the baseball gambling scandal that has seen a fourth player from the Yomiuri Giants admitting to his involvement.

“I’d like to ask if he really is the last person involved. We can’t clear those doubts,” Hase said at a news conference following a Cabinet meeting. “I’d also like to ask Nippon Professional Baseball if it’s just the Giants. I want this to be properly dealt with.”
