Major League (MLB) Shohei Ohtani 카지노사이트 (LA Angels)’s run is amazing again this year. On August 10th, Ohtani, who won 10 regular season wins, wrote baseball history once again. Ohtani in 2023 is the only player in MLB history who has simultaneously achieved 10 wins and 40 home runs in a single season. It is no exaggeration to say that 2023 is a season for Ohtani, by Ohtani, and for Ohtani.
There was a rival who once competed for the throne of Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) with such Ohtani. This is Shintaro Fujinami, who joined the Oakland Athletics and currently plays for the Baltimore Orioles. A Koshien superstar, he was the same age as Ohtani and was the motivation to join the pros. He was simultaneously drafted by four teams in the 2012 draft. According to Baseball America, an American baseball magazine, many scouts rated him as “a better player than Ohtani.”
Soon after, the futures of the two diverged sharply. The past, of course, is not much different in 2023, which is running side by side in MLB. No, to be precise, the results on one side are horrendous.
Fujinami announced that he would advance to the MLB after the 2022 season. Auckland answered Fujinami’s cry. In January, Fujinami signed a one-year, $3.25 million contract with Oakland through the posting system.
The atmosphere was good until the test match. In his first game, which attracted attention for his confrontation with Ohtani, he pitched 2 innings, 1 hit and no runs. After that, he showed ups and downs, but finished the exhibition game with an average ERA of 3.86 with 20 strikeouts in the final 18 and 2/3 innings.
