Hours after sending Toronto Blue Jays fans into a frenzy over possibly landing prized free agent Shohei Ohtani, the reporter responsible for mid-day chaos has apologized.
On Friday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported that Ohtani was on a flight to Toronto, hinting that an agreement with the Blue Jays was either done or close. That was not the case, though, prompting Morosi to own up to his error on social media.
Taking to X, formerly Twitter, Morosi showed remorse for reporting “inaccurate information.”
“I regret the mistake and apologize to baseball fans everywhere,” Morosi wrote. “I am deeply sorry for letting you down.”
