According to Canberra Times' David Polkinghorne, Matt Blazynski was offered $30,000 to lose their semi-final games during the Asia Series.  A snip:

Taiwanese police are investigating an alleged match-fixing scandal after a Canberra Cavalry player reported to officials he was offered $30,000 to lose their Asia Series baseball semi-final.

Cavalry catcher Matt Blazynski has alleged he was approached at a Taichung bar on Sunday, on the eve of the semi-final.

Blazynski says he was offered $30,000 to influence his teammates to lose the semi-final against Korean champions Samsung Lions by at least seven runs.

... While the amount offered doesn't seem like much, it's almost as much as the entire Canberra playing roster is paid over the course of the ABL season.

Its payroll is just $47,000.

And the latest from the China Post:

Police have confirmed that they are investigating a complaint by a Canberra Cavalry player who said he was offered US$30,000 to fix an Asia Series baseball game.

... The Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB), which has been assigned the case, has yet to identify any suspects.

... The CPBL also asked all other teams in the tournament to see if any of them had received any similar match-fixing offers, Huang said, adding that the conclusion was that the Cavalry offer was an isolated incident.
