Shohei Ohtani (29, Los Angeles Angels), who is often called the “baseball cartoon character” because of his often unrealistic scenes, hit an impressive home run and drew attention from baseball fans once again.
On the 3rd (Korean time), Ohtani teamed up with key hitter Mike Trout in an attack in the top of the 5th inning of the 2023 American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) Oakland Athletics visit game held at Ring Central Coliseum in Oakland, California, USA.
It started with a trout. In the top of the 5th inning with a lead of 3-0, Trout hit an outside fastball against opposing team starter Ken Waldychuck in the chance to first base safely and exploded a large mid-wall two-run gun. 토토사이트
It was a large cannon that could intuit a home run immediately after hitting the ball. The ball hit the top of the stands and bounced off.
After hitting the ground, Trout received a straw hat from a colleague for a player who hit a home run and gave a high-five ceremony.
At the moment when Trout enjoyed the dugout, Ohtani, the follow-up hitter, kicked Waldychuck’s first pitch and hit a large home run on a similar course.
Like Trout, Ohtani’s ball hit the crowd and bounced to the ground, creating a more dramatic scene.
A relay camera caught Trout sharing his joy with his teammates at the dugout, and Trout gave his straw hat back to his teammate, bursting into laughter as if it were absurd.
Local media such as MLB.com cited this scene as the best MLB scene held on the 3rd.
MLB.com highlighted that “Ohtani and Trout made a back-to-back home run with two balls.”
Ohtani and Trout are superstars representing MLB. The two players also created a dramatic scene by meeting as pitcher and batter in the 2nd end of the 9th inning of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) final match between the United States and Japan.
At that time, Ohtani struck out Trout and decided the championship.
The two players who returned to their team after finishing the WBC are leading the MLB box office with their best skills.
Ohtani, who started as designated hitter No. 3 that day, went 4 at-bats, 1 hit, 1 RBI, including a home run in the 2023 season, and Trout, who started as the center fielder for the 2nd batter, flew 3 hits (1 home run), 2 RBIs and 1 walk in 4 at bats.
