This book is about the superstar Ohtani Shohei (大谷翔平). It is a superstar who has risen to the top but still plays like a challenger, looking at his professional and human aspects.
Ohtani has been a special player who has been called the future of Japanese baseball since high school, but at the professional level, many people believe that he will build a career by choosing a position as a pitcher or fielder (batter). There were many who predicted that even if they tried to double their pitching careers, after some time, they would choose one field with more successful results and put down the other field. 메이저놀이터
However, the experts’ predictions were spectacularly wrong. After joining the NPB Nippon Ham Fighters, he proudly surpassed the predictions and prospects of the media and fans and silently walked his own path. That is why Ohtani exists today.
His sense of challenge and his spirit of improvement are the values that occupy the biggest part of Ohtani’s baseball life. Ohtani has devoted all of his goals, plans, and time to baseball since he was a child, to the point where it could be said that he bet his life on baseball. It is difficult to find the time of wandering that often accompanies the growth of sports stars.
This book focuses on the career of a baseball player named Ohtani, but it is not a book that only illuminates and analyzes his performance in a baseball game. His growth period, which had never been conveyed in detail to domestic fans, the story of his NPB days in Nippon Professional Baseball, the process of moving to the major leagues, and the events leading up to becoming the best player in the major leagues are well organized.
A biography, an encyclopedia, and a photobook dealing with Shohei Ohtani have been combined into one book. It is a book that will be very interesting for all baseball fans and sports fans who have a lot of questions about Shohei Ohtani and the character.
