‘Blue Tie’ Ohtani Joins Dodgers… Roberts Manager Smiles

The Dodgers held a news conference for Otani at the Dodger Stadium at 8 a.m. on Saturday. It was a historic joining ceremony for Otani, who signed a 10-year contract worth 700 million U.S. dollars.

Ohtani took over the Major League as a pitcher and hitter at the same time. He proved himself to be the best player by winning the American League MVP title unanimously in the 2021 and 2023 seasons. Ohtani displayed stellar performance in the 2023 season by posting 10-5 losses with an ERA of 3.14 and a batting average of 0.304 with 44 home runs and 95 RBIs as a batter.

However, Ohtani never made it to the fall baseball league with the Los Angeles Angels. After all, he became a free agent and joined the Dodgers, the strongest team in the Western Division of the National League. To reinforce Dodgers’ performance, Ohtani signed a contract that includes 97 percent dipper (a grace period for annual salary payment), drawing keen attention. 파친코

Ohtani will receive only 20 million U.S. dollars from the 2024 season to the 2033 season. The remaining amount will be paid interest-free for 10 years from 2034.

As a result, Ohtani’s joining ceremony drew a lot of attention. Ohtani, who shook the Major League through the biggest contract ever and a 97 percent dipper contract, wore a blue tie to join the ceremony. Unlike his red tie when he joined the Angels, he wore a blue tie to announce that he has been reborn as a “Dodgers man.”

Dodgers President Andrew Friedman and manager Dave Roberts put on a big smile. Ohtani also wore a blue-colored suit. He showed a smile after taking off his shirt and wearing the Dodgers uniform. He then started his first career as a Dodgers man by answering reporters’ questions.
