T-Shirt from Los Angeles Angels promotional giveaway on September 24, 2019
Baseball hasn’t seen a player with such prowess at the plate and on the mound since Babe Ruth…and “The Babe” certainly couldn’t run as fast and smooth as “Sho Time” does! Ohtani was a high school phenom unlike any other in Japan, and absolutely lived up to the hype. In five breathtaking seasons playing for the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters, Ohtani accumulated enough awards for a lifetime, including:
Then, in 2018, it was on to MLB’s Los Angeles Angels. Ohtani turned down the opportunity to reach free agency and earn a more lucrative contract to be able to test himself earlier against MLB hitters and pitchers. He knew that he was ready, and it showed, as he won the American League Rookie of the Year unanimously. Since then, he has battled injuries, but at only 26 years old (as of the start of the 2021 season), he has plenty of time to showcase his unique talents.
Ohtani had a unique, MVP-caliber start to 2021, and we look forward to seeing him dominate on the mound and at the plate for years to come!
