SJ - May 29, 2021

Shohei Ohtani was on the mound on Friday night in Oakland.  Things got interesting in the bottom of the third inning when he buzzed A's hitter Mark Canha's tower with a 93 mph fastball.

Canha, and his overwhelmingly high self-esteem, weren't happy with the up and in pitch that didn't hit him.  He cried and threw a fit causing the benches to partly empty for further evaluation.

Ohtani asked for the ball back and watched Cahna's extremely soft performance all while laughing at him.

Being the smart ass that I am I would have buzzed his tower again with the very next pitch.  Canha wanted to make a scene and stomp around complaining, but he clearly didn't want anything to do with Ohtani physically.

Having fastballs buzz your tower is part of the game.  If you don't like it play a sport that fully embraces your softness.
