Major League Baseball agent and Granite City High School alum Jason Wood was sacked Wednesday by CSE Talent, an Atlanta-based sports agency, after a player reportedly discovered a hidden camera in a shower at Wood's home.

According to Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan, Wood was sacked by his agency Career Sports Entertainment and subsequently suspended by MLBPA after allegations he filmed his clients with the use of a hidden camera. "It's unfortunate that CSE TAlent aligned itself with someone who didn't uphold these sam standards and therefore we chose to terminate with cause Wood's employment".

Three sources say that Wood has been fired by CSE, where he was the President of Baseball.

The player reportedly confronted Wood and then fired him as his agent.

"The allegations that have surfaced today are absurd and untrue", Wood said in a text to Yahoo! "I am disappointed that there are those who have chosen to spread such irresponsible and harmful rumors". Multiple sources suggested to FanRag Sports that other players were also being filmed.

Wood, who represents roughly 50 big leaguers, founded Arland Sports in 2006.

No names for the alleged victims have been released, but Wood's clients include Andrew Benintendi of the Boston Red Sox, Riley Pint of the Colorado Rockies and Joey Wentz of the Atlanta Braves.

The MLBPA, which certifies agents, is investigating the allegations against Wood, and the union said (via the AP) it will give him the chance to respond. FanRag reported that other players have fired their representatives at CSE and are looking for new representation.
