[Apology from Lotte Giants CEO]
Lotte Giants sincerely apologize for the recent unfortunate incident caused by a member of the club.
It is absolutely unacceptable for a professional baseball player who is supported by many fans to commit a crime against minors.
In particular, this disgraceful act, targeting teenagers who love professional baseball and dream of watching players, hurt the hearts of many people.
The club apologizes once again for acknowledging the player’s neglect of management and causing social controversy.
The club promises to prevent strict recurrence through periodic prevention of sexual violence and conduct of gender awareness education in the future.
Once again, I would like to express my apologies to everyone who loves Lotte Giants.
