MLB star Shohei Ohtani joins Babe Ruth in exclusive club, passes Japanese icon Ichiro Suzuki

  • Major League Baseball (MLB) player Shohei Ohtani, 28, hit major milestones on Tuesday night as he helped his Los Angeles Angels team to victory.
  • Ohtani achieved the statistic of having 10 home runs and 10 wins in the same season, an achievement that has not been reached since Babe Ruth 102 years ago.
  • He also hit his 25th home run of the season, bringing his home run total to 118, surpassing Japanese MLB legend Ichiro Suzuki’s 117.
  • The Japanese native is far from finished and could potentially pass former New York Yankees star Hideki Matsui, who holds the record for most home runs by a Japanese player in MLB at 175, a figure just 57 home runs away for Ohtani.
  • In the 5-1 game on Tuesday against the Oakland Athletics, Ohtani played a critical role in the victory as he hit a home run and pitched six innings with five strikeouts.
