MLB Opening Day: Shohei Ohtani cloud rises as 2024 season begins.

Even though fans have seen some MLB activity, the 2024 season begins on Thursday with Opening Day.

The Dodgers and Padres opened the 2017 season with a two-game series in South Korea, but the rest of MLB starts this week.

After signing two-time MVP Shohei Ohtani and pitching sensation Yoshinobu Yamamoto, the Los Angeles Dodgers offseason was filled with excitement and World Series speculation.

The latest gambling incident involving Ohtani and his longtime interpreter Ippei Mizuhara has eclipsed baseball debate in recent weeks.

ESPN and the Los Angeles Times said that Ohtani's lawyers accused Mizuhara of “massive theft” of millions of dollars and,

placing bets with a federally investigated bookmaker when the Dodgers were in South Korea last week. Teammate Mizuhara was sacked in Seoul.

Ohtani, who signed baseball's richest contract with the Dodgers in the offseason,

denied betting on any sport or paying a bookie and blamed his former interpreter for stealing money from his account.
