José Mota “My favorite moment is when I hit No. 40”
Shohei Ohtani, a reporter at the Angels Broadcasting Station “Barry Sports West,” won the A League MVP for his 9 wins and 46 home runs and dual wield pitching in an interview with the Full-Count editorial department. Praise again. In the future, he won the Cy Young Award and won the home run king, saying, “I can do it.”
–About the success of Shohei Ohtani this season
“It was a historic season that we will never forget for many years. We have shown our power, speed and ability to recover, and we have played many games in good health. We also played before and after the pitching day. The numbers he piled up are historic. At one point he was asked how many home runs he thought he would hit and said, “I don’t know. This guy has no limits.” We witnessed it. I did.
I’m glad he had fun. At the end of the season, he put pressure on himself, and when things went wrong, he seemed to be depressed, but he still enjoyed smiling. Now, the most important face of the baseball world in the world is Shohei Ohtani. “
–Did you anticipate your success?
“I never said no. I was often asked before the season to say” 30 home runs, “but I felt that” this guy is very special when it comes to power. ” He’s talented and has a lot of skills. My favorite moment is when he hits No. 40 in Detroit. When he saw that, he said, “What a big hit. It’s not a season, it’s a really special season! “
Not many players can hit 40. What’s more, the pitcher hits. Even on the mound, he struck out more than 150, 9 wins, and split was impossible and dominant. What he did was not a surprise to me. I wouldn’t be surprised if I had an even better season. He adjusted to his opponent better than his opponent adjusted to him. It wasn’t very good last year, but see what we did from there. Deserves praise. “
