The Cubs came up short in the Shohei Ohtani sweepstakes, but it clearly wasn’t due to lack of effort.

Ohtani agreed to sign with the Angels on Friday, much to the dismay of a number of teams — including the Cubs.

Chicago did use a unique method in attempting to court Ohtani, though. The Cubs’ presentation to the Japanese star included a virtual reality experience showing what his life as a member of the Cubs could look like, according to Jon Morosi of FOX Sports.
