Sho-Time by Jeff Fletcher tells the inside story of the Los Angeles Angel’s Shohei Ohtani, a “two-way” baseball player. From the time he started playing baseball for the Angels he has become a celebrity. Shohei is a unique player, a unicorn to use baseball language, because he can pitch and hit, in the same game. Ohtani just made history as the only player to be named to the ALL-STAR team as both a pitcher and hitter two years in a row.
Jeff Fletcher uses his own experiences to explain the Shohei phenomenon. As the writer for the Orange County Register for the last eight seasons, he uses his vast knowledge of baseball and the Angels to delve into the challenges, triumphs, and journey of this baseball superstar.
