A meteor shower was what originated the Home Run Derby this Monday at Coors Field stadium, home of the Colorado Rockies, the venue designated to host the All-Star Game and its festivities.
With “even the lamps full,” fans could see the huge show that Pete Alonso put together to become two-time champion of the Home Run Festival, whose main attraction was the MLB sensation, the Japanese. Shohei Ohtani.
Although Ohtani fell short and was eliminated in the first round by the Dominican Juan Soto, the Japanese was very happy and even had the luxury of meeting celebrities that he had not had the opportunity to see in person, such as the former Red Sox star, David ortiz, to whom he asked for a photo to remember once he had the honor of greeting him for the first time in his life.
Through the person who serves as Ohtani’s personal translator, Big Papi was able to talk a little with the Asian, who was surprised to meet the retired from Oaxaca.
