Major League Baseball Shocked That DraftKings Employees Could Play

“Major League Baseball has a policy that prohibits players and employees from participating in fantasy baseball games which prize money and other things of value are available to participants.  We were surprised to learn that DraftKings had allowed its employees to participate in daily fantasy games.  We have reached out and discussed this matter with them.”

DraftKings management is coming under increasing pressure from partners like the MLB and other investors to respond accordingly to this matter.
