This is Leo Guastello. He is 6 years old. And the story of how he got this bat is wonderful.

So it’s about 5:55 p.m., and Shohei Ohtani has just finished taking batting practice. Rather than head back to the clubhouse with his teammates, he curls behind the cage and starts signing autographs.

You all need to read this thread. This is why Shohei Ohtani is so important to baseball. If you don’t think he, along with some other guys, are changing the game for the better, then you’re mistaken. Doing it for the young generation is what it’s all about.

@JeffPassan When my son was days old, @Nomar5 gave me a signed bat for him. When Parker was old enough to appreciate that gesture, he chose to wear No. 5 as a player. Once Nomar became a Dodger, my son finally got a chance to meet him in person. Check out his smile.

The year is 2033. Leo Gaustello is making his ML debut against crusty 38 year old veteran Shohei Ohtani. On the first pitch Leo takes him deep and flips his bat out to the mound. When Ohtani bends down to pick it up he’s the one he gave him all those years ago

Read this thread. Ohtani reminds me so much of Trout in the way he handles himself on and off the field. Another great ambassador for the game.

This thread by @JeffPassan is wonderful. Little Leo is wonderful. Shohei Ohtani is wonderful.
Sometimes it's the small, wondrous moments in sports that make the day great.

Ohtani waving at fans trying to get his attention as he wraps up pregame workout. A kid named Leo Guastello got a little more before Ohtani’s workout (thread from @JeffPassan)

This is how you get a fan for life. I had a similar experience at Candlestick with John Franco. It is the little gestures that get a kid hooked. @MLB take note, this is how you win young fans. Engage them!!!

So it would seem from this story that Ohtani is not only an exceptionally talented ballplayer, but also nice to young fans. This is a good thing.

敵地での打撃練習が終わり、試合開始まで時間が少ない中、大谷翔平選手はサインに応じ、そしてバットを欲しがる子のためにロッカーに戻って別のを差し上げたよう。ファンサービスも早くもメジャー級です。#大谷翔平 #ファンサービス

@JeffPassan If he turns this bat a little bit so that everyone could see ASICS
Corporate trade mark, he should get a lot of money also.
