Korea is your hometown? Ohtani is not “I like kind Korean players” 

Shohei Ohtani shocked Korean hitters eight years ago.

Ohtani, who started in the 2015 Premier 12 and threw a ball with a maximum speed of 161 km, left a truly incredible result of 2 games, 13 innings, 21 strikeouts and no runs. At the time, Korean batters who watched Ohtani’s ball unanimously said, “It was the first power I experienced.”

Will Ohtani face Korean batters again after 8 years? Ohtani will represent Japan in the World Baseball Classic next month. The starting pitcher for the match against Korea on the 10th of next month has not yet been decided, but since he is a two-hitting star, it is highly likely that he will face off against Korea even as a hitter. 메이저사이트

<Ohtani: I don’t know if the players I faced last time are still there. I remember that I threw well, but I don’t know if I will throw well this time, and I’m looking forward to it because (Korea) is a good team with strength> The

Japanese reporters’ attention was focused on the fateful rival Korea game. In Arizona, Japanese reporters continued to ask Korean reporters how they felt about the Korea-Japan match. However, Ohtani, who was asked the same question, expressed his impressions of the business trip rather calmly.

<Ohtani: I have seen many matches against Korea so far, but there is no big change for me. Personally, I like Korean players. When I meet Korean players in the major leagues, they always talk to me. All of them are good players, so I look forward to meeting them>

Ohtani is scheduled to start in an exhibition game against the Milwaukee Brewers on the 2nd of next month and then move to Japan to join the national team. The Angels club allowed Ohtani to start in the WBC so that he could improve his condition, considering that the season was close to the end of the tournament.

He is already so popular that tickets for the Korea-Japan match are hard to find. It is because Ohtani, Kim Ha-seong, Lee Jung-hoo, and other Korean and Japanese players are scheduled to face each other. The Korea-Japan match, which Ohtani also expected, is already a matter of great interest.
