One of the best ways to examine a Major League athlete’s long-term consistency is by checking their All-Star awards. Ohtani is quickly accumulating plenty. He has three MLB All-Stars while he earned five during his time in Japan. But he also set crazy records during those All-Star games.
One of the craziest is that he earned selection as both a pitcher and a hitter. This was an unbelievable achievement because it was the first time in the showpiece event’s near-century existence. It also proves Ohtani’s dominance in the sport and why every franchise will want this free agent (via ESPN).
