Baseball star Shohei Ohtani can't escape the spotlight. Having just nabbed his second unanimous MVP Award - the first in MLB history - he's been setting records left and right that no one can quite wrap their heads around. Of course, since the records are still being set each season, perhaps we have to begin to believe in the legend, and what better way to do that than to dig deeper into the man's story?
This is where Shohei Ohtani: Beyond the Dream comes in. This new documentary promises to follow Ohtani's career from his early days in rural Japan all the way to his achieving stardom in Major League Baseball with the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim. The documentary will also feature "unprecedented" in-depth interviews with Ohtani as well as the people around him: coaches, players, and more.
Altogether, this documentary seems like a perfect holiday watch for baseball fans of all ages and even non-baseball fans who might be interested in who this magical "unicorn" (dubbed as a player who both excells at pitching and hitting) is and why he's blowing the baseball world away.
