Column: Shohei Ohtani’s personality will help him fit into Dodgers’ clubhouse


Where’s Charlie?

The question from Shohei Ohtani caught Freddie Freeman by surprise.

Freeman had introduced his then-5-year-old son to Ohtani at the All-Star Game in Los Angeles in 2022.

Now here they were, back at Dodger Stadium 17 months later as part of a contingent of players enlisted to recruit Yoshinobu Yamamoto, and Ohtani was asking Freeman about his son by name.

Ohtani has continued asking about Charlie in camp.

“Every single day, ‘Where’s Charlie?’ ” Freeman said.

Freeman will have his son accompany him to the team’s spring training facility on Saturday.
