Hideki Matsui sent a classy note on Wednesday after having his record broken by Shohei Ohtani.
Ohtani on Wednesday homered against the Boston Red Sox for his 32nd of the season. That home run helped him surpass Matsui, whose 31 home runs in 2004 were the most ever by a Japanese-born player in MLB.
Matsui issued a statement in response to Ohtani surpassing him. Matsui wished Ohtani continued success and shared he was looking forward to seeing what is next.
