The only way you can be forgiven for ignoring Shohei Ohtani’s ludicrous season with the Angels is if you live under a rock. A rock that happens to be at the bottom of a forgotten mineshaft. And that mineshaft isn’t featured on any maps, or visited by spelunkers.
Wednesday night was a classic Ohtani day at the office, which naturally means he did something impossible.
Ohtani hit his league-leading 40th home run of the season Wednesday night, becoming the fastest player in Angels history to reach the mark. Ohtani bettered a 21-year-old mark set by Troy Glaus, extending his league-leading home run total by five ahead of second place Vladimir Guerrerro Jr.
