Ohtani announced in late February that he had recently married “a normal Japanese woman” 

“Normal”? Perhaps not the kindest of words from a husband, but I guess Shohei would be in the best position to make an assessment.

She cannot live here legally in America

Designated hitter? The player marketed and sold himself as a pitcher; the Dodgers have bought 'a pig in a poke', haven't they...

Normal in this case means non-celebrity. A lot of baseball players here marry TV announcers, models or TV stars.

Normal in this case means non-celebrity.

Or that the most delicious dish she makes is “dry curry,” according to a report in the Japanese magazine “President.”

Congratz to the couple. It's good they reveal it.

It's great because i love it when baseball players bring their family along to watch the games. Especially the kids to see the sport.

“a normal Japanese woman” 

Welcome to the age of computer translation. Any competent speaker of English would know to say she is "a private citizen" as opposed to her husband who is "a public figure" without even needing a dictionary.

Was she a member of the silver medal winning Olympic team?

I’m going to get downvoted but Japanese celebrities, for the most part but not all, living overseas are so boring… if it’s true love that’s great but the US is so big, so many people from everywhere so are there no non-Japanese who can speak Japanese to date or is that they just don’t feel comfortable getting out of their bubble just a little bit?

What has this got to do with the price of fish???

I'm sure the management of the Dodgers have the expertise to handle the requirements of family members.

This isn't a Japanese thing per say. A lot of people only date within their Nationality. Japanese tend to be more open than other Eastern Asian countries in dating outside their ethnicity.

A great couple. Well done!

I know her. I used to date her when she was even more "normal."

Wanna bet? Wait and see what kind of doors $70m opens. She'll be able to do whatever she wants. This is the whole point of being rich. The normal rules don't apply.

For the love of all things... leave them alone.
