“Come to Seattle! Clap clap clap clap”
The slogan started by a small number of spectators quickly resonated throughout the stadium. The 48,000 spectators who filled T-Mobile Park all began to repeat the slogan, and Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels), the protagonist of the slogan, left the dugout with a smile despite striking out.
Ohtani had a meaningful experience in the All-Star game. On the 12th (Korean time), Ohtani, who started as the second designated hitter of the American League All-Star team in the 2023 MLB All-Star Game, courted 48,000 spectators with a different ‘tempering’ (pre-contact) as soon as he entered the plate. received
Ohtani, who will become a free agent (FA) after this season, is a ‘hot potato’ in the upcoming FA market. Ohtani, who posted a batting average of 0.302, 32 homers, and 71 RBIs as a hitter this year, and a 7-4 record, 3.32 ERA, and 132 strikeouts as a pitcher through the first half, will sign a contract worth more than $600 million for the first time this winter. It is evaluated as strong. The biggest MLB contract ever is a 12-year, $426.5 million (approximately 562.5535 million won) extension contract signed by Ohtani’s teammate Mike Trout with the Los Angeles Angels.
He is a player that any team can covet if they have the money. Same with Seattle. On this day, the All-Star Game was held at T-Mobile Park, the home stadium of Seattle, and Seattle fans who filled the stadium seduced Ohtani with a slogan, “Come to Seattle.” Coincidentally, the uniform color of the American League All-Star team was the same as Seattle’s alternate uniform, Northwest Green.
Zack Gallon (Arizona Diamondbacks), who faced Ohtani in the first inning, was also confused. According to MLB.com, he said, “I thought, ‘If Ohtani allowed a home run, the stadium would explode.'”
After the game, Ohtani said through MLB.com, “It’s the first time I’ve experienced this, but I heard (the crowd’s chants) clearly.” The fans here are always passionate, which is very impressive,” he said looking back at the time.
On the last All-Star Media Day, Ohtani said of Seattle, “I spent about two offseasons in Seattle. I think he spent about 4 months in total. Seattle is a really nice city. I really liked it.” It remains to be seen if the courtship of Seattle fans will really work.카지노사이트
Meanwhile, in the All-Star Game, the National League All-Stars beat the American League All-Stars 3-2. This put a brake on the 9-game winning streak of the American League All-Stars. Elias Diaz (Colorado Rockies), who led the National League All-Stars to victory by hitting a two-run homer in the top of the 8th inning, was selected as the MVP of the All-Star Game.
