Angels slugger and pitcher Shohei Ohtani has accomplished feats on the ground that few have seen. Now one of his shirts is also setting brands.
On Wednesday, Ohtani’s autographed jersey from the 2021 All-Star Game was auctioned by Major League Baseball for $ 130,210, making it the top-selling item in 20 years of MLB Auctions. The previous record had been set just three days earlier, to the surprise of few, a Angels jersey that Ohtani himself wore during a July 2 game, which sold for $ 121,800.
In that meeting, the Japanese hit his 29th and 30th home runs of the season. Ohtani did not wear the auctioned All-Star game jersey.
All proceeds from the jersey auction will help the Baseball Assistance Team organization, which confidentially assists members of the baseball family (former Major League Baseball, Minor League, Women’s Baseball League, Negro Leagues and their families) MLB and Minor League employees, scouts, umpires, and others) who need help through charitable contributions, including financial aid, health resources, and rehabilitation assistance.
All proceeds from the Angels’ shirt auction were donated to the Angels Baseball Foundation, which focuses on initiatives to create and enhance education, health care, arts-sciences, and community programs for youth. region of. (MLB in Spanish)
