Shohei Ohtani has won so many awards for having the best season in baseball history that it’s not even funny at this point.
He couldn’t be representing the LA Angels any better than he is, and the list is truly insane.
So far, Shohei Ohtani has not only won one of the most honorable awards in baseball history in the Commissioner’s Historic Achievement Award, but he’s also been named Player of the Year by:
- Baseball Digest
- Baseball America
- Sporting News
- Players Choice Awards (MLB PA)
He also won a Player’s Choice Award for AL’s Most Outstanding Player.
The crazy thing about this, however, is that he was actually named Player of the Year by another organization as well. Many weren’t talking about this one all too much. Ohtani has won so many awards lately that this one got lost in the shuffle.
Shohei Ohtani was named Associated Press’ Player of the Year.
The awards are just never ending for Shohei Ohtani. The crazy thing is that this is by no means the end of the road for offseason honors that Ohtani is going to take home.
Well, when you hit .257/.372/.592 (.965 OPS) with 46 HR, 103 R, 100 RBI, and 26 stolen bases, you’re in a pretty good spot. When you also start 23 games on the mound and record a 9-2 record, a 3.18 ERA, and a 1.090 WHIP, it just becomes ridiculous.
Ohtani deserves every bit of respect for his efforts this season. This is especially due to delusional people who at times in the season claimed that Vladimir Guerrero Jr. should win the AL MVP award. Some idiots still think that.
These awards that Ohtani’s lining up prove how horribly wrong all of those takes were.
