Shohei Ohtani Bats into the States

Where’re all my baseball fans at??

Shohei Ohtani, megastar of the Nippon Ham Fighters, has signed with the Los Angeles IMG_20171209_074029.pngAngels!! He’ll be playing as a designated hitter and as a pitcher. The Angels beat out other West Coast teams as well as the New York Giants to gain Ohtani’s bat. Ohtani wanted to sign on the West coast to make traveling easier for his family. He also wanted to avoid any teams who had past Japanese stars or current Japanese players to avoid comparisons and taking away attention from his fellow countrymen.

Though I’m not really much for baseball, I’m excited to see him play! What can I say? He’s adorable, a fantastic baseball player, and shares the same birthday as me (though he’s three years older). My loyalty has already been cemented!
