“I’m doing something unprecedented as a pitcher, winning games and hitting home runs.”
Legendary 303-win left-hander Randy Johnson mentions Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani. As for the two-way wrestler, who won 13 major league titles this season, he praised him saying, “He did the unthinkable. He did what even Babe Ruth couldn’t do. “
In the video posted on the 20th (21st Japan time) on Twitter by American sportsbook maker ‘VSiN’, Mr Johnson was amazed at the performance of Otani, who has been active in throwing and hitting this season. In 1918, Babe Ruth (then Red Sox) had double-digit wins and double-digit home runs for the first time in 104 years. He became a puncher. Ohtani plays two-handed with five days off. He’s doing something unprecedented as a pitcher, winning games and hitting home runs.”
Ohtani, who won the MVP title last season and showed a competitive performance this season, is a famous pitcher who won 303 in 618 games in 22 years and won the Cy Young award five times, which is the third highest in history. it has become a presence to be reckoned with.
