As if being an accomplished hitter and pitcher wasn't enough, a video has surfaced highlighting another one of Shohei Ohtani talents: dancing.
The free agent, who the Yankees are courting, has been compared to Babe Ruth for his ability to both pitch and hit at a high level. And this video shows he can dance at a high level, too, for whatever that may be worth.
Ohtani, 23, hit .332 with a .403 OBP, 8 home runs, 16 doubles, and 1 triple in 65 games this past season for Nippon, while playing right field and left field. During his five-year career as a pitcher, he has a 2.52 ERA and 1.07 WHIP with 624 strikeouts in 82 starts. He's fastball has reportedly reached 101 MPH.
MLB teams would have to pay the above $20 million posting fee to Nippon before being granted permission to negotiate with Ohtani. According to current international rules, the signing bonus must come from the MLB team's international bonus pool.
