Ohtani Hype: Ohtani Ties Franchise Home Run Record

April 26, 2024

Given that Ohtani recently beat the all-time record for most home runs by a Japanese-born player, I found it a bit odd that he is now chasing down the Dodgers’ record for most home runs by a Japanese-born player. The current record is held by Dave Roberts with seven home runs.

I thought I was going to watch a lot more baseball tonight, but unfortunately the Angels game was not broadcast on Bally Sports. It was on a local channel in LA that I don’t have access to. The game was actually the free game of the day on but it was still blacked out here. The struggle.

A banner for potentially free Jumbo Jacks. Very unlikely unless 10 runs are given up this inning to go into extras.
