Shohei Ohtani was unable to open due to traffic in San Francisco

Fate did not want Shohei Ohtani to make his opening Thursday with the Los Angeles Angels in Major League Baseball. Incredibly, the Japanese could not get to the Oakland Athletics stadium on time due to traffic in the city of San Francisco and then due to the delay in the train.

A traffic accident left one of the Los Angeles Angels buses trapped in the Bay Bridge, so they had to take the city train that has a stop at the Athletics stadium, however, they did not have that precisely the train they took had delays, which meant that they could not arrive with enough time in advance.

For this reason, Shohei Ohtani could not perform the respective warm-up exercises before each start and therefore Los Angeles Angels manager Joe Maddon decided to move his start to Friday and replace Patrick Sandoval. But the Japanese was not out of action, as he was placed as a designated hitter.

Controversy with the train company:

Once the manager of the Los Angeles Angels, Joe Maddon, released the anecdote on the official Twitter account of BART, as the city subway is known, he came out to deny the strategist and ensure that they had not presented any delay . However, shortly after they admitted to having problems, the reason for Ohtani’s delay was confirmed.

This episode will remain as one more anecdote in the season that the Japanese is having in the MLB, in which he shines both as a pitcher and as a batter. From the mound he is 3-3 with a 2.37 ERA, while on the bat he dazzles with an offensive average of .269 and 15 home runs. (GG) (Bolavip)
