Satoria was able to quit his day job to compete in the WBC. The vast majority of the Czech team is filled with players with actual day jobs, while being baseball players at night.
Ohtani may be the most talented, well, baseball player of all time. You don’t need a reminder of how awesome it is, but you’ll get one anyway.
Last year, Ohtani became the first player in MLB history to officially qualify for both the pitching and hitting leaderboards, and he was near the top on both.
He had the 10th-best OPS in the majors (.875) as well as the sixth-lowest ERA (2.33). He is legitimately elite in both hitting and pitching. Had it not been for a record-breaking season from Aaron Judge, he would have won his second straight MVP award.
The Tokyo Dome is hosting pool games at the WBC, and of course the Japan games are pretty much sold out. It’s also the first time Ohtani has played competitive baseball in his home country since 2017, so everyone is cast as his national hero.
But the electrician struck out the former MVP, on three pitches!

The punchout pitch was a devastating 72 mph «off-speed» pitch. He didn’t throw above 79 all day.
His teammates gave him a standing ovation from the bench, but the positivity was short-lived, as Japan won, 10-2.
Despite the ugly strikeout, Ohtani is doing well in the tournament. In Japan’s first game on Thursday, he struck out five in four innings with one hit and one run without a run. He also went 2 for 4 with a double and two RBIs.

In the entire tournament, he is 5-for-10 with three doubles and four RBIs, as Japan is 3-0.
