How good is Shohei Ohtani? He’s now apologizing to opponents for his skills.
In Wednesday’s match against the Rays, the celebrity Angels two-way participant went from a frighten, to a trap to…”I’m sorry.”
With one out in the top of the third inning in Angel Stadium, Rays slugger Austin Meadows drilled a first-pitch offering back to Ohtani, a comebacker that registered in 93.8 mph from the bat. Ohtani got a glove on it until the ball popped out. And then, ever so coolly, Ohtani snatched it with his bare hand, much to the dismay of all Meadows, who flipped his bat in frustration.
As Ohtani crossed paths with Meadows at the baseline, Ohtani gave him a Michael Jordan-esque shrug and smiled, saying”I’m sorry.”
Yes, folks. He can do it all. No apologies necessary, Shohei.
