Ohtani Hit a Pinch Hit Go Ahead Homerun Last Night

Yeah, 443 ft is pretty impressive. It’s pretty impressive to hit a pinch hit homerun. It’s pretty impressive to hit a homerun to give your team the lead. It’s pretty impressive to do it all with a torn UCL.
Mr. Ohtani. This was impressive.
My guess was Mike Scioscia had an Angels in the Outfield moment, and someone told him to put the Japanese Babe Ruth in. Highly unlikely, but that’s my take on this entire situation.
Ohtani is hitting .275 with 7 homeruns this season. He was also pretty impressive on the mound. I hope the elbow injury doesn’t deprive us from seeing a once in a lifetime talent.
