Full Shohei Ohtani Experience on Display in 'Sunday Night Baseball'

In the span of two hours, the alluring, generational talent of Shohei Ohtani was on full display.

Pitching and hitting in the same game for the first time since joining Major League Baseball, Ohtani wasted no time showing why his arrival in the U.S. three years ago was met with so much hype. The 26-year-old touched 100 miles per hour with his fastball three times in a hitless top of the first inning. Then, batting second in the bottom of the first, Ohtani ambushed the first pitch he saw and deposited it well into the right field pavilion seats.
