Four minutes later, as Leo is about to head with his dad to their seats, Shohei Ohtani walks back across the field, leans over the rope and hands Leo a bat. Imprinted on the barrel, in kanji, is Ohtani’s name.

Shohei Ohtani is 23 years old. He’s trying to do something that hasn’t been done in a century. And he still had time for a 6-year-old boy who just wanted a bat and along with it got a new favorite player.

Beautiful story. Shohei Ohtani comes from a baseball tradition with a strong foundation built brick by brick by schoolkids since the early 1870s. Growing the game with young people isn't a burden. It's a way of life.

This thread is why baseball, and sports in general, are more than "just a game."

@JeffPassan that’s good stuff. Glad to see he takes care of fans. It’s probably dumb to care about these things, but it’s cool to see him be cool to kids who look up to him.
