Shohei Ohtani shows off with homer over the Green Monster (Video)
Shohei Ohtani hit a monster home run to put the LA Angels on the board against the Red Sox.
Displaying his ridiculous strength, Sho Time ripped an opposite-field bomb that soared over the 37 foot, 2 inch high left-field wall at Fenway Park.
Unfortunately, the sixth-inning solo blast wasn’t enough to lift the lowly Angels over the AL East-leading Red Sox, but it was an impressive shot nonetheless.
Shohei Ohtani’s power on display with homer at Fenway
It’s hard enough to pull an opposite-field home run, but even more so when the Green Monster is involved. Ohtani made it look easy.
Sho Time is proving himself to be one of the most dynamic, versatile players in baseball. The 26-year-old now has an MLB-leading 11 home runs this season and 58 in his career along with a 5-3 all-time record as a pitcher.
Earlier this week, he threw 88 pitches then patrolled right field so he could stay in the batting lineup.
On April 26, Ohtani struck out nine batters, scored three runs and knocked in two more. He also became the first MLB player in nearly 100 years to start a game on the mound while also entering the day on top of the home run leaderboard.
The last player to that? Just some guy named Babe Ruth.
Needless to say, Shohei Ohtani is truly unlike any other baseball player in recent memory.
