He also can be a bit of a comedian as well.
In Saturday’s game, Ohtani was called out on one of the most horrendous calls any of us have ever seen.
LA Angels’ two-way superstar Shohei Ohtani had the best reaction possible.
Instead of getting angry or arguing, LA Angels’ designated hitter Shohei Ohtani just wagged his hand, breaking the news to the umpire that it was a truly horrible call.
Seeing Ohtani react like this was hilarious. It was truly the best way to go about a situation like this. Most would have gone crazy, just like our home broadcast for Bally Sports.
We were all going crazy on the couch. Especially when this umpire called that pitch on us again in the very next pitch to our star first basemen Jared Walsh. This umpire needs to see an eye doctor immediately.
I’m serious, though. This umpire clearly doesn’t have very good vision, and shouldn’t be allowed to umpire if he’s going to miss that badly. Major League Baseball needs to address this.
We all would have liked to see Kerwin Danley be ejected, but Ohtani didn’t let it get the best of him.
While most would have had several choice words for Danley, Ohtani handled it with grace, and gave us some laughs too.
This man is not only having the best season of all time, but even knows how to argue with umpires perfectly too. There’s nothing Ohtani can’t do.
