Shohei Ohtani (29, LA Angels)’s partner must feel tremendous pressure, right?”
MVP of the major league season, an unprecedented master of dual swordsmanship (two-handed batting).
In the end, he led Japan to the 2023 WBC (World Baseball Classic) championship against the US and Mexico national teams full of major leaguers. From senior Yu Darvish to young Sasaki Loki (22) and Takahashi Hiroto (21), they made ‘Samurai Japan’ one team.
He is the main character of a baseball cartoon that came out in reality. He was already a superstar enough to record 15 wins and an average ERA of 2.33 (2022) as a pitcher and 46 home runs and 100 RBIs (2021) as a hitter on the world’s best stage, but Ohtani completed a legend through this tournament.
Now Japan has turned its focus to Ohtani’s lover. Kazuyuki Shirai, head coach of the Japanese WBC national team, appeared on a Japanese TV show on the 29th and was asked about ‘Ohtani’s marriage partner’. The MC asked, “Does Ohtani have any weaknesses? Some players bring their wives along to the tournament. Does Ohtani have a partner, or do you plan to get married in the future?”
What was Coach Shirai’s answer? He laughed at the audience with a wry smile, saying, “In my heart, I want to call her my daughter. I have two daughters, and the eldest daughter is the same age as Ohtani.”
The answer continued, “After watching closely for a long time, there is no atmosphere as if someone is present right now.” Coach Shirai and the cast agreed that “Ohtani’s marriage partner would probably feel a lot of pressure”.
So far, Ohtani has never been embroiled in a scandal. The Japanese media were ahead of Atsuya Furuta. Taking examples of Ichiro Suzuki,먹튀검증 Norichika Aoki, and Daisuke Matsuzaka, it is predicted that a female announcer will be an influential partner for Ohtani in the future. His status as a major leaguer, which is difficult to come and go to the mainland, also supports this speculation.
The lover of a famous star follows the world’s resentment. Previously, Yomiuri TV said, “There are only two ways to avoid getting jealous. Ohtani does not date, or marry the first love he met in kindergarten or elementary school,” which evoked sympathy from Japanese baseball fans.
