The pressure on Ohtani had to be immense.

It’s essentially glorified batting practice. Yawn.

This event is nonsense.

Over 50,000 people in the stadium would disagree with you

Probably the other Japanese should had backed up Ohtani with more camaraderie support on the field to loosen him up, like some players did to the other HR contestants

This event is for fun - look at all the players on foul-territory watching the contest with their kids

And the fans just want to catch the balls while enjoying the bombs

I hate the way they film it. you should use a side angle so we can actually see where the ball goes.
