A KBO official said in a phone call with “My Daily” on the 22nd, “Doosan reported to the KBO Clean Baseball Center two weeks ago that eight of its players prescribed sleeping pills to Oh Jae-won in a substitute manner.”

On the 17th, the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office’s violent crime investigation department (Director Kim Yeon-sil) arrested and charged Oh Jae-won on charges of violating the Narcotics Control Act, violating the Specific Crimes Aggravated Punishment Act (such as threatening retaliation), damaging special goods, fraud, and violating the National Health Insurance Act and the Resident Registration Act. According to the prosecution, Oh Jae-won has been found to have touched drugs since he finished his active career. Oh Jae-won was investigated once through an acquaintance’s report on the 9th. At that time, Oh Jae-won returned home after testing negative for a simple drug reagent.

However, the situation changed rapidly when the police conducted additional investigation and found additional clues that Oh Jae-won took drugs. Accordingly, the police arrested Oh Jae-won on the 19th of last month, and the Seoul Central District Court issued an arrest warrant for Oh Jae-won on the 21st. According to the prosecution, Oh Jae-won administered methamphetamine 11 times from November 2022 to November last year. This was not the only case. In April last year, he is suspected of storing 0.4g of methamphetamine in a fire hydrant in an apartment corridor of an acquaintance.

In addition, Oh Jae-won received 2242 tablets of “Stilnox tablets,” a psychotropic drug containing a sleep-inducing agent containing Zolpidem, from nine acquaintances on 89 occasions from January last year to March this year. In addition, he not only bought 20 tablets of Stilnox tablets by stealing his acquaintance’s name, but also asked students and parents of his baseball academy to be prescribed sleeping pills for him. When an acquaintance tried to report his drug use to the police, he reportedly threatened by smashing his acquaintance’s mobile phone with a hammer and grabbing him by the collar.

In the process, suspicions were raised that Doosan players were prescribed sleeping pills to Oh Jae-won instead. Doosan launched a full investigation of the team immediately after the report was released. Then, shocking facts were revealed. It was found that eight Doosan players, who Oh Jae-won was active in, received sleeping pills on behalf of Oh Jae-won. Doosan immediately reported it to the KBO Clean Baseball Center as soon as it confirmed the fact. From the standpoint of both Doosan and KBO, it was struck by the dry sky.

A Doosan official said, “When the case about Oh Jae-won was raised for a long time, we conducted our own investigation. After finding out about it, we immediately reported it to the KBO Clean Baseball Center.” The eight players who gave Oh Jae-won sleeping pills through proxy prescriptions reportedly felt threatened by threats and violence due to their relationship with their seniors and juniors, so they acted on it. “This issue happened in the hierarchy of seniors and juniors, and there is a regrettable part,” a Doosan official said.

Doosan, which has not made any special changes to its entry even after reporting it to the KBO Clean Baseball Center after completing the investigation two weeks ago, is in a position to watch the police investigation for now. Not only are they concerned about the players’ identities being disclosed through the change of entry, but also because the charges of the eight players have not been confirmed. A Doosan official added, “Once it is confirmed that eight players are suspects, there is an internal principle that it is difficult to play in the game. Currently, the players who have been prescribed sleeping pills instead try to be as sincere as possible in the police investigation.”

Although the drug proxy prescription is clearly wrong, KBO also plans to take a closer look at the situation such as police investigations. A KBO official said, “If you are a current criminal, we will impose a suspension of participation and take disciplinary action according to legal punishment, but we cannot take disciplinary action now.”

Oh Jae-won began his professional career in 2003 with the Doosan Bears’ designation as the 72nd overall pick in the 9th round of the second round of the rookie draft, with 1,152 hits, 64 homers, 521 RBIs, 678 runs, 289 steals, and a batting average of 0.267 OPS 0.712 in 16 seasons. In particular, he lifted the Korean Series (KS) trophy three times until the 2015, 2016 and 2019 seasons, and two of them even served as captains. And starting with the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, he also marked the Taegeuk mark at the 2015 World Baseball Softball Confederation Premier 12 and 2017 World Baseball Classic.

In particular, Doosan even held a grand retirement ceremony when Oh Jae-won took off his active uniform at the end of the 2022 season, which seems to have been shocked by the fact that he forced his juniors to prescribe sleeping pills on behalf of them. This is the fall of the former national team and KBO League star player.
