White Sox Latin America Scout Admits Guilt in Kickbacks Case

A former Chicago White Sox scout pleaded guilty to scheming with two other men to take kickbacks from the Major League Baseball team’s signing bonuses paid to Latin American prospects. Jorge Oquendo Rivera admitted today to one count of mail fraud in federal court in Chicago. Oquendo, fellow scout Victor Mateo and former White Sox player personnel director David Wilder were indicted a year ago on charges they extracted about $400,000 from the bonuses and from Mexican player contract buyouts.
