The governor of Florida, USA, also praised Shohei Ohtani.
Governor Ron DeSantis, who is one of the contenders for the 2024 Republican nomination for President of the United States, recently appeared on a podcast and said, “Ohtani is the biggest star in the major leagues right now.”
US Fox News reported on the 27th (Korean time) that Governor Desantis appeared on ‘Outkick the Show’ hosted by Clay Travis, saying that Babe Ruth is the best baseball player ever (GOAT), but “There has been no player like Ohtani in the past 100 years.” said메이저사이트
He said, “Whenever you ask who the GOAT is in baseball, I always say Babe Ruth. You could argue that Willie Mays or Ted Williams were the best hitters of his day. But Ruth was the best home run hitter of his day and one of the best pitchers of his day.” said.
He continued, “Right now, Ohtani is doing both. And I think he’s the top star in baseball. How can he do that? No one in baseball history in the last 100 years has been able to do that.”
Meanwhile, Ruth hit 159 home runs in his first 674 games and went 35-18 in his first 455 innings as a pitcher. Ohtani hit 160 home runs in the first 674 games of his career and pitched 455 innings with a 35-19 record as a pitcher. Ohtani notably broke Ruth’s record last June. That same month, while also playing as a starter, he hit 14 home runs, breaking a record previously held by Ruth.
Meanwhile, the Angels have reportedly decided not to trade Ohtani.
