Shohei Ohtani (29), who recently moved to the Los Angeles Dodgers after receiving the highest treatment for professional sports in North America, was named the best sports star of the year.
The AP reported on the 22nd (Korea Standard Time) that Ohtani was named the male player of the year. This is the second award since 2021.
According to the report, Ohtani received 20 votes out of 87 voting members, beating soccer’s Lionel Messi and tennis’s Novak Djokovic with 16 votes.
As a result, Major League Baseball has produced winners in this category for the third consecutive year. Following Ohtani in 2021, Aaron Judge, the home run king, was honored last year.
Ohtani pitched 132 innings in 23 games as a pitcher last season, going 10-5 with a 3.14 ERA. He has 167 strikeouts.
He then hitters with a batting average of 0.304 with 44 home runs, 95 RBIs, 102 runs, 151 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.412 OPS 1.066 in 135 games.
Ohtani thus won his second MVP award. Ohtani was also the first player in Major League history to win two unanimous MVPs. 월카지노
Since then, Ohtani has become a free agent and recently signed an amazing 10-700 million-dollar contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, proving to be a top superstar.
Sandy Koufax and Ohtani are the only Major League Baseball players who have won the Association’s top player award more than two times since 1931. Tiger Woods and LeBron James have won the most awards four times.
Now Ohtani is about to start preparing for the 2024 season. Ohtani will make his LA Dodgers debut in the Seoul Series on March 20 and 21, 2024.
