Prepare for Ohtani-mania! Shohei Ohtani, the "Japanese Babe Ruth" has made his presence known on the mound and at the plate in his first week of Major League Baseball. Ohtani has silenced even the biggest of doubters by batting .462/.462/.923, and getting a win in his first start as a pitcher while punching out 6 over 6 innings of work while giving up only 3 runs to the A's. His back-to-back home runs in consecutive nights against the Indians, including one off reigning Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber, have officially brought the eyes of the baseball world to the Angels.
Shohei Ohtani will continue to get more exposure even though he plays for a relatively lesser-known team. Jason Smith says that MLB needs to carry every one of his starts on national TV in an effort to expose out of market fans who desperately want to watch him play. Listen as Jason and Mike Harmon answer the most burning questions about Shohei Ohtani including; would you rather watch Ohtani or Giancarlo Stanton at this point?
Tune into The Jason Smith Show w/ Mike Harmon weeknights from 11pm - 2am EST on FOX Sports Radio!
