The Coolest Story in Baseball Continues Tonight
Shohei Ohtani will be on the mound and batting second in the Angels lineup against the Houston Astros.
What Ohtani is doing this season as a two-way player is something we haven't seen since Babe Ruth. BABE FUCKING RUTH!
This man is leading the majors in homers with 10 and he's not just hitting homers; he's hitting absolute moonshots with exit velocity numbers challenging the likes of Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge.
Ohtani hasn't just been raking at the dish. He has been shoving on the mound, with an ERA sitting at 2.41 through his first 18.2 innings pitched this season.
Can Ohtani become the first Japanese MVP since Ichiro in 2001?!
