City of Los Angeles Celebrates ‘Shohei Ohtani Day’

The city of Los Angeles celebrated their newest superstar on Friday, with the City Council declaring May 17 as “Shohei Ohtani Day” in honor of the Dodgers’ Japanese slugger.

During a ceremony at City Hall, Council President Paul Krekorian praised the Dodgers’ acquisition of Ohtani in a record $700 million deal.

“It was a huge moment for this city earlier this year when the Dodgers were successful in completing the most important free agent acquisition probably in baseball history when they signed an athlete who has accomplished things in professional baseball that no one since Babe has achieved. Ruth,” Krekorian said.
