In the World Baseball Classic, the Czech team consists of players with regular day jobs. One of them is Ondrej Satoria, who is an electrician when not playing baseball for his country. Also, he is the most popular Czech electrician today after he struck out Shohei Ohtani.
Bookie PPH experts agree that Ohtania is the most talented baseball player today. Last year, he became the first MLB player to qualify for hitting and pitching leaderboards. Also, he almost led in both categories.
According to sportsbook pay per head reports, he had the sixth-lowest ERA and tenth-best OPS last season. Thus, no one can deny that he is one of the best players at pitching and hitting. He could have won MVP if Aaron Judge had not had a record-breaking season.
Czech Electrician at the World Baseball Classic
The Tokyo Dome hosts the WBC. As a result, home games for Japan have been sold out. Also, it is the first time Ohtani has played at home since 2017. So, there’s no surprise why many fans showed up to cheer for their baseball hero.
However, the Czech electrician spoiled the party for the host nation. According to the best online bookie software, Satoria struck out Ohtani in three pitches. Also, the third strike came from a 72-miles-per-hour off-speed pitch. The Czech pitcher did not throw a pitch over 79 mph throughout the game.
Despite the hiccups, Ohtani is performing well in the WBC. During Japan’s first game, he struck out five batters in four innings. Also, he got a double and two RBIs. He is five out of ten for the WBC with four RBIs and three doubles. In addition, Japan remains undefeated with a 3-0 record.
