There's been some movement in the case of game fixing by some players in the Chinese Professional Baseball League.

Via the China Post:

Three professional baseball players, all of the Brother Elephants team, confessed to prosecutors of playing fake games yesterday and returned their illegal payment as evidence.

With qualms of conscience, Elephants pitchers Li Hao-jen and Wu Bao-hsien, as well as outfielder Chu Hung-shen, admitted to prosecutors their roles in helping fix some baseball games.

It seems that, in all, 12 players were connected to the scandal.
