Two things that Los Angeles Angels Shohei Ohtani’s two-way phenomenon seemingly can’t stop this season are setting records and cracking smiles on baseball fields.

According to Brian Murphy of the MLB website, a 2021 American League All-Star jersey signed by Ohtani closed Wednesday at $130,210 in an MLB Auctions auction. That broke the previous record for the most expensive item offered by that service, dating back to 2001.

Ohtani also held the previous record of $121,800 set three days earlier for one of his game-worn Angels jerseys dated July 2 this year. The 27-year-old international superstar never wore the All-Star jersey.

According to Murphy, the net proceeds from Ohtani’s All-Star jersey will benefit the Baseball Assistance Team, which includes former players, managers, scouts, umpires and other employees (and family members) in multiple professional baseball leagues, including the minor leagues and Negro Leagues. .

The net proceeds of the Angels shirt will go to the Angels Baseball Foundation. According to its website, that foundation focuses “on investments in education, health care, arts and sciences and community-based youth programs across the region” and also provides community children with an opportunity to “experience the great game of baseball.”

And some think Ohtani can’t be the face of MLB.
