Shohei Ohtani is bound for Los Angeles. The Angels rookie on Monday bid farewell to his Japanese club, the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters, and threw the ceremonial pitch from the Sapporo Dome mound before leaving to join his new team in the United States. Ohtani was all smiles as he welcomed the crowd to his news conference and introduced himself in English while wearing an Angels jersey.
