Mr. A Rod praises Otani as Harper for hitting, Scherzer for pitching, and Turner for running power
Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani decided to steal two bases against the Indians on the 22nd (23rd Japan time) and made 19 stolen bases this season, and made a check for 40 home runs and 20 stolen bases in the first season in the history of the team. Alex Rodriguez, who hit 696 home runs in MLB, praises Otani in comparison with the major top-class stars with a triple time signature of offense and defense.
The match was broadcast live nationwide as the “Little League Classic,” which is held annually at the venue of the Little League World Series. Before the match, Rodriguez, who was a commentator at ESPN.com, mentioned Otani, who has a non-standard result in the dual wield of throwing this season.
“There is no doubt about it,” said Matt Basgarzian, who is in charge of the game, saying, “No, the main attraction in all sports here is Shohei Ohtani.” “If you had the power of Bryce Harper, the pitching ability of Max Scherzer, and the speed of Trea Turner … you could say that it has everything,” he praised Otani.
Harper, who won the MVP and home base hitting king in 2015, Scherzer, the strongest active right-hand man with three Cy Young Awards, and Turner, the stealing king in 2018. Rodriguez admits that Otani has the “weapons” of illustrious stars, “It’s something we’ve never seen before. It has a unique talent and it’s all there. Don’t miss it, “he said with great expectations for his future success.
The Angels will not have a match on the 23rd (24th), and will challenge the Orioles in the enemy territory from the 24th (25th) with a rest of the day. Attention is focused on Otani’s every move, which is recognized by the “Legend” who marked 3115 hits, 696 home runs, and 329 stolen bases in the Yankees.
