To say the least, Shohei Ohtani’s arrival in major league baseball has not gone unnoticed.
Since 2018, the Japanese sensation has been doing what few players before it have done. Not to say, only one … (Babe Ruth): ie hitting with authority and throwing in the starting rotation of a formation.
According to GQ MagazineOhtani could represent « the face of major league baseball » for years to come. And for good reason. Along with Fernando Tatis Jr., Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Ronald Acuña Jr. and others, he represents a type of player who brings wonder to the youngest of us.
At the statement about him in the sports magazine, the versatile athlete indicated that he was up to the challenge.
“It’s very encouraging to be presented like this. It is above all very motivating for me and it gives me the desire to continue in order to offer excellent years, ”says Shohei Ohtani.
With the labor dispute that continues in major league baseball and the latter’s quest to rally the youngest to take an interest in it, Ohtani’s presence is reassuring.
It must be said that his performances in 2021 are more than interesting and anyone who wants to be interested in baseball can certainly start by looking at what Ohtani is doing to tie in with it.
We can bet that the big thinkers of major league baseball and the Los Angeles Angels marketing team will take advantage of the years to come to put Ohtani at the forefront.
