Angels star rookie Ohtani creates buzz during 1st appearance in Toronto

Slugger Mike Trout predicted teammate Shohei Ohtani would hit the Rogers Centre scoreboard during batting practice Tuesday.

Los Angeles Angels hitting coach Eric Hinske went one further and said Ohtani would put a ball right over it.

Ohtani, the 23-year-old Japanese sensation, had to settle for a monster shot that landed in the stadium’s fifth deck during the must-see pre-game session.

The two-way rookie star is not scheduled to pitch during the three-game series against the Blue Jays — his first appearance in Toronto — but the presence of his powerful bat and stunningly smooth stroke should more than suffice.CBC | MLB News
