“This ball is smashed” exclamation… ‘186.9km’ Ohtani’s cannon, ML New used again

‘Monster’ Ohtani Shohei (LA Angels) wrote another new history.

On the 15th (hereinafter Korean time), Ohtani started as a designated hitter in the 2023 Major League Texas Rangers away match held at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, USA, and scored 2 hits in 4 at-bats (1 home run), 2 RBIs, 1 run and 1 run. It exploded with a walk.스포츠토토

Ohtani is at its climax. Starting with the match against the Houston Astros on the 4th, Ohtani is on an 11-game hitting streak until the 15th. His batting average of 0.262, which was the lowest in June, has risen to 0.299 before he knows it, and he is on the verge of entering the 30% mark.

The hitting streak is certainly worth noting, but the most notable part is the home run pace. Ohtani started the season by hitting 7 home runs during the month of April, drew an arch of 8 in May, and has already hit 6 home runs with half of them left until the end of June. In particular, he has 5 homers in his last 6 games.

Aaron Judge (New York Yankees), who hit 62 home runs last year and rewrote American League history, suffered a foot injury while defending against the Los Angeles Dodgers and fell off the line. Ohtani’s sense of hitting is exploding. Ohtani overtook Judge to lead the American League in home runs, and now he’s closing the gap.

In particular, Ohtani’s 21st home run of the season on the 15th was truly a ‘masterpiece’. Ohtani faced Texas ‘finisher’ Will Smith in a scoring opportunity with one out and second base in the top of the ninth inning when the team trailed 1-6. After Ohtani picked out a low ball for the first pitch, he pulled the fastball with all his might from the 94.1 mile (approximately 151 km) second pitch in the middle of the strike zone with an advantageous count of 1B-0S.

The ball hit by Ohtani went straight at a speed of 116.1 miles (about 186.9 km), and after flying a whopping 453 feet (about 138 m), it was connected to the 21st home run of the season that crossed the left-middle fence of Globe Life Field. Although it was not a home run that was linked to the team’s victory, there was no doubt that it was a home run that continued a good trend.

According to ‘MLB.com’, Ohtani’s 21st home run of 116.1 mph has been the ‘best’ for a left-handed hitter since Statcast measured exit velocity in 2015. The fastest batted ball speed hit by a left-handed hitter before Ohtani broke the record was 113 miles (about 181.9 km) by Joey Gallo (now Minnesota Twins) with the Texas Rangers on September 26, 2017.

Ohtani wrote a new history in terms of left-handed batters, but Giancarlo Stanton (New York Yankees) was the player who produced the fastest batting ball when including right-handed batters. ‘MLB.com’ said, “The fastest home run hit was 117.3 miles (about 188.8 km) when he hit a two-run home run in right field against the Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Center on Opening Day in 2018.” “Yankees player It was his first home run.”

‘MLB.com’ said, “The exit velocity of Mammoth’s two-run four was 116.1 mph, the fastest among left-handed homers.” “How many ways does Ohtani surprise us?” “We can try to count it, but it will probably be futile “I couldn’t help but marvel. Dave Raymond, who is in charge of broadcasting at ‘Belly Sports Southwest’ in the US, also said, “This ball is smashed. A monster-class home run.”

On the 13th, Ohtani hit his 20th home run, marking his third consecutive year with 100 strikeouts and 20 home runs. This is the ‘only’ record held by Ohtani in the major leagues. And he became the ‘first’ player since 1893 to rank in the top 15 overall in the major leagues for home runs and strikeouts. Ohtani is setting records both on the mound and at bat in ways beyond imagination. How big of a contract he will sign after he gets free agent status after this season is over
