The New York Mets of the American professional baseball major league sent a warning message to Shohei Ohtani (29, Los Angeles Angels), who is known as the “double sword”. He was astounded by Ohtani’s amazing long hitting power and left a humorous message on the electronic board for two days in a row.
Here’s the story. On the 27th (hereinafter Korean time), Ohtani started as the designated hitter in the game against the New York Mets held at Citi Field in Queens, New York, USA. From the first at-bat in the first inning, he turned the bat fiercely. He hit an exciting batting ball with a ball count of 2-1 with no runners out. He showed the possibility of a home run as the ball stretched out.
The ball flew over the fence at 107.3 miles per hour (approximately 172.7 km) and hit the billboard as it slightly missed the right fence. It was a foul home run. Cut a hole in the top of the beer billboard. The Mets team immediately posted a warning message on the central electronic board. We’re sending you the bill for that, Shohei. We’ll send the bill (for the smashed billboard) to Ohtani.
Despite the humorous warning, Ohtani did not pay heed. In the ensuing match, he pulled out a long hit. He made a faster batting average of 109.6 miles per hour (about 176.4 km) on a ball count of 2-2. He hit a double that hit the middle right fence directly with a one-bound.메이저놀이터
On this day, he recorded 2 hits, 2 walks, 1 RBI and 2 runs in 3 at-bats. He had a multi-hit four on base and led the Angels to a 5-3 victory. Before the game on the 28th, the Mets posted another warning message on the central display board. Please don’t break anything else, Shohei! Please don’t destroy anything anymore, Ohtani!
The second warning worked. Ohtani went 0-for-4 in the game on the 28th, perhaps due to the two warning messages in a row. He turned around, striking out two. The Mets scored in the bottom of the 8th and 9th innings with Ohtani’s blockade to win 3-2.
