He's been called the "The Babe Ruth of Japan," and the only place to see him will be in a Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim uniform.
Shohei Ohtani, the pitcher-slash-hitter phenom, signed with the Angels after being courted by pretty much every ball club in Major League Baseball.
"He's a 23-year-old kid who since he was a teenager has been coveted around the world for his baseball skills," said Pedro Moura, who covers the Angels for the LA Times. Ohtani is set to be an impressive player for the Angels once the season begins, Moura said.
"He can both throw as hard as anyone in the world can throw and hit baseballs as hard as anyone in baseball can hit them. So those two things in tandem with a growing and developing acumen create a pretty desired player. The Angels have hit the windfall on him."
