UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — Japanese baseball star Shohei Ohtani hit his first major league home-run at the Los Angeles Angels’ stadium in Anaheim.
It was the first inning.
One of the most anticipated rookies came to the plate against the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night.
Ohtani hit a three-run homer to help his team beat the Indians 13-2.
But when he returned to the dugout, his teammates seemed to ignore him.
Giving a cold shoulder is a Major League tradition for a rookie’s first homer.
NHK reported that this is the first time a player to win a game as a pitcher and then hit a first-inning homer within the next 2 days since Babe Ruth.
