Shohei Ohtani is rumored to be dating Kamalani Dung.
There’s plenty of nicknames for Shohei Ohtani. “Shotime,” “The Greatest Sho on Earth,” “Sho Off,” and the list truly is growing every day. But does Shohei have a “Sho-bae”? (Let me get these jokes off, please!)
The answer is: a strong possibly.
We hate to be the bearer of bad news, especially when it comes to dating rumors with athletes, but there’s always that small chance that it could happen. There’s been talks of whether or not the overnight superstar has a significant other in his life. According to Celeb Hook, there could a possibility, but nothing is confirmed or denied, especially since the leading lady in question plays on the diamond herself.
So who is Shohei (allegedly) dating? Drumroll please…
That would be Kamalani Dung, or Kama for short, who is an alumna of UC Berkley. Before transferring to Cal her sophomore year, she attended Fresno State, and was considered one of the best pitchers out of Hawaii. Dung also played professionally with National Pro Fastpitch, and the Puerto Rican National Team.
Dung, a right-handed pitcher, is a threat at the mound. In the 2018 World Baseball Softball Confederation championship, she tallied up eight strikeouts against South Africa according to her bio from Cal; so yeah, she’s definitely the truth. She also does a bit of modeling on the side, but it seems like anywhere she steps out is the runway, whether she’s in or out of uniform.
Okay, but we need the proof that Shohei and Kamalani are truly an item
But let’s get into the nitty gritty, we know about Kamalani, but is she dating Shohei? Do we have tangible evidence to support this claim? If so where is it?
Well, one article by Meawww has dug into the archives, showing a picture from 2018 of what looks to be Dung and Ohtani. Well…
Okay okay, it’s one picture, let’s not panic, ladies and gentlemen. The Ohtani ship has not sailed just yet, let’s not freak out and assume anything until we get an UP TO DATE picture of him and Kamalani boo’d up. Until then, this is all speculation and should be taken with a grain of salt. Pro athletes are private people, and we should honor their privacy, especially when it comes to relationships.
Until then, stan your favorite player to your heart’s desire this All-Star Week, as Ohtani is slated to participate in the Home Run Derby on July 12 and the All-Star Game on July 13. Let’s hope he stays single and grabs a few singles on the diamond this week.
