The Toronto Blue Jays kicks off a three game series with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim tonight at the Rogers center. This is also the first time that Shohei Ohtani will play in Canada. Coming off a spectacular 9-K performance on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Rays for his 4th win (see previous post), Ohtani is ready to take a few swings against J Happ on Tuesday at the Rogers Center.
The slumping Jays, having trouble filling the stadium this season due to their abysmal slide (2-8 record in the previous 10 games), will hopefully see a boost in attendance from the appearance of Ohtani. Normally flooded with blue at the Rogers Center (the heart of multicultural Toronto), we’ll no doubt see supporters of Japanese superstar Shohei Ohtani (and probably a few for Mike Trout) in the stands this evening.
