Fans reacted hotly to Ohtani’s record of ‘violating the pitch clock’ by both pitchers, “I witnessed this, the only player who can do this.”
Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels became the first pitcher and hitter in the major leagues to become a Pitts Clark violation in one game안전놀이터. The fans’ reaction is hot.
Ohtani played as a starting pitcher and designated hitter number 3 in the 2023 major league Seattle Mariners away game held at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington, USA on the 6th (Korean time).
