Thanks to Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout, baseball is exploding!
In the final of the World Baseball Classic, the United States was battling against Japan, and this duel was going to be explosive because of two names: Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout.

A scenario worthy of Hollywood, no less! Two of the best players on the planet, if not the two best, playing for the same team in the MLB, the Los Angeles Angels, battling for the big Classic. WOW!

In the last few weeks, baseball fans have been treated to some very high quality baseball, also rekindling many extinguished flames in some fans.

That said, the Americans took the field as defending champions, and they lost 3-2 to the impressive Japanese and the GREAT Shohei Ohtani.

To get back to the Hollywood chapter, it came down to the ninth inning, where Ohtani came to the mound to close the books. He started his shift with a walk to Jeff McNeil, only to force a double play to Mookie Betts.

At that point, the score was still 3-2 in favor of Japan with one out to go.

Trout came to the plate to battle his opponent, friend and teammate on the Angels. Fans of the “ball” witnessed a great battle between the two stars, where Ohtani got the better of Trout by passing him in the mitt… thus giving the championship to his nation.

Here is this spectacular battle between the Japanese and the American:
