Ohtani did more to light up Iwate and the Tohoku area than Tokyo Tower or the Tokyo Olympics.

Because his Japanese some people don't want to recognize his accomplishment and achievement.

You see this often when it comes to Japanese and Asians achievements.

You see this often when it comes to Japanese and Asians achievements.

There are always naysayers and cranks but to say that people don’t want to recognize Otani’s achievements in baseball because he is Asian/Japanese is not a true statement in the least. Otani won the award. He won it in a non Asian, multi-racial country. He won it in a sports league based outside of Asia. The only one that appears hung up on the race angel is ReasonandWisdomNippon. There are only a limited number of foreign players even allowed to play baseball in Japan and most other Asian countries and none have won an MVP award as far as I know.

Do yourself a favor and enjoy the accomplishments of a very talented athlete without the made up negativism.
