Shohei Ohtani Baseball Hero Book

World-renowned Japanese baseball player fan book

Contrary to popular belief, Japan's love affair with baseball didn't start after WWII. As a matter of fact, the sport was first introduced to Japan as a school sport in 1872 so its history in the country is over 150 years old! And of course, there are many Japanese who would like to try their hand (or bat) at the American Major League and several dozens have tried and actually achieved impressive records. But none of them has reached the fame of Shohei Ohtani, the two-way (pitcher and batter) who since 2017 has been the star of the Los Angeles Angels. And who is the subject of the Shohei Ohtani Baseball Hero Book!

With 96 A4 pages filled with pictures, text, and data from the first ten years in Ohtani's professional career (2013-2023) in Japan and the US, this is THE book any fan will want to have. And it is particularly helpful if you are studying Japanese because all the text, from the front to the back cover, has furigana characters that allow you to read even the most difficult kanji characters and look them up in a dictionary! If you're a baseball fan (and particularly an Ohtani fan) and were looking for a way to make learning Japanese easier, this stunning book is for you!
