    Pros and cons of dual wield

    OB players and experts have expressed various views on Shohei Ohtani's "dual wield".

    Dual wield

    • Ichiro(After turning from the batter group to accepting dual wield)

    In an interview in 2015, "I thought I should do a batter. There are a lot of great pitchers, but such a batter doesn't come out easily. In a sense of distance that I didn't actually play on the ground. I don't think there are as many batters as he does. "" (Dual wield) if you can play a pitcher and protect the outfield the next day, you can do both. " He pointed out that the pitcher is not rare, and recommended that he focus on the batter-oriented dual wield or batter.[268]..However, after the 2021 season, he announced his comments through his agency and praised Otani for his success this season. "Shohei Otani is often referred to as a dual wield, infinite possibilities, an exceptional talent, and such a vague expression. No one has ever experienced the fact that there is no comparison. It is a waste that is challenging the frontier, and it is also a destiny that you have to make a ruler yourself. From the outfield's point of view, 2021 that was active throughout the season without injury is a year that gave a certain answer with concrete numbers. I think that in order to play for a long time as a core player, it is essential to have a season that is the axis of playing with full power for one year. I think that could have been built this year. The time as an athlete is limited. There are various ways of thinking. However, I can only do it while I can. I hope that the 2021 season will be an opportunity to create an era where only Shohei can draw while trying as hard as possible. "[269].

    Looking at Otani immediately after joining the team, he said, "Batters are good, but I'm a pitcher. Anyway, he has something that Japanese people haven't had before. Above all, he's good. (Height) 194-5 (Cm) I think there is. Still, I can do that. Looking at that movement, I think it's an MLB pitcher, "said the pitcher's opinion.[270]Later, he changed his opinion, saying, "I can't say (stop dual wielding) now, the scale is different.[271].

    Although he has the view that he will concentrate on either pitchers or batters in the future, he said, "I won't say either 200 wins or 2000 hits,MeikyukaiCome to If you want to continue the dual wield, I want you to do it with that kind of enthusiasm."[272].

    "Why do I want to do it, but where do I need to pick the buds? Let me do it, and take responsibility for the results myself."[273]"It's about people, but I'm curious. I want to see. As a person who played baseball, more people might want to see if this really can be done in the United States. "[274]He said he was interested in the will of Otani himself and the possibility of the dual wielding in Major League Baseball.

    He recommends a choice that respects his own will, and as of the summer of 1, when he was in the middle of his first year as a professional player in Otani, "There seems to be an opinion that if you do both, you will not be first-class, but so far it is almost unheard of. I feel that it's strange to say that it's impossible because it wasn't there. I know it's difficult, but I can't deny the unprecedented thing suddenly. I think. "" It's a very simple idea to try both because both are good, but it wasn't in the common sense of the ball world. "And so on.[275].. He also congratulated Otani when he updated his season's most Japanese home run "2021" in 31, saying, "Season 32 home runs are just a passing point if you have Otani's batting. I've been called a long-distance hitter in the big league, but I feel he's a true long-distance hitter. Also, Otani is a great pitcher. It is the one and only thing that has changed. I hope that I will continue to carry the dreams of fans and boys and survive the season. I am looking forward to it as a baseball fan. "[276].

    In the winter of 2014, he said about Otani, who finished his second year as a professional pitcher, "I was honestly surprised that he has improved so much this year as a pitcher. I cheered[277].

    • Isao Harimoto(After turning from pitcher group to dual wield acceptance)

    He praised Otani as a pitcher, "I think the American batter can't hit it when I see how to throw it."[278]"The two-sword style is injured, and it may be possible to become the world's best pitcher, but it is wasteful to injure that chance with the two-sided style. I criticized the Nirugari for the risk of injury.[279]He also admitted that he had batting skills, and admitted only a part of the dual wield, saying, "If you look at that way of hitting, it should be just a substitute."[278]..He used to make such a statement, but on December 2021, 12Sunday MorningWhen he appeared at, "I was saying that I should prefer a pitcher, but since the batters have grown so much since I came here, no one wanted to do two. It has changed to the idea of ​​accepting dual wield, such as commenting "Is it?"[280].

    Regarding Otani, who played an active part in the 2021 hit, "It's really incredible and amazing. Until now, Ichiro has been a pioneer of Japanese players. In the United States alone, he hit more than 3000 hits, and Japan and the United States. In total, he recorded more than 4000 hits. The two-sword style of pitcher and hitter that Otani showed this year is really wonderful. I wonder if I can see such a player in the future (other than Otani). I've never seen a player like this. I can only say that I can't believe it. "[281]"Otani is unique. He is an elite pitcher and batter. I think players like him will never appear."[282]"If I'm the manager, I won't try to fix what's going well. It's the most important thing for Otani to be happy. I want to maximize my strength, and now Will continue the dual wield. "[283]He gives a favorable opinion to the dual wield.


    At first, there was an opinion that "Don't lick the Japanese professional baseball world" about the use of two swords, but after seeing his success, he began to recommend that he continue to use two swords. I agree with you. It is also attractive to do things that no one has done before. There are many people who are called "one talented person in 10 years", but in the history of 1 years of professional baseball, such a player Will be the first time. "[284].. However, in an interview in April 2017, "Isn't it possible to "follow two rabbits but not get one rabbit?"" "If the pitcher is not satisfied with the five bodies, he cannot throw. However, if I'm the director, Otani wants to use it as a pitcher without any complaints. There is no player who can turn the batter at any time, but there is no player who can throw 4 km," he said. ing[285]..After Nomura's death, his grandson and Angels employee, Sachiyo Nomura, recalled that in his later years, Nomura evaluated the dual wield Otani as "a really great baseball player, whether he is a pitcher or a batter."[286].

    "If you have the potential to become number one, you're a pitcher. You should take the possibility of becoming number one." "(Dual wield) I think it's interesting and interesting to watch considering the popularity of professional baseball. However, when he wants to go to the majors, he will definitely get stuck, "he said, recommending that he concentrate on the pitcher.[277]..Even in the 2021 season when Otani played an active role as an MVP, in an interview with the Padres local newspaper, "He has the ability to be both a pitcher and a batter. I'm always worried about that. It's tough to fight the full season just as a pitcher, yet he plays in the DH every day and pitches once every 7-8 days, which is pretty good for the body. I think it's stressful. You should feel more than twice as much as usual. "[287].

    "MLB won't let players who make a lot of money do that risky thing. For each team, DH will be hit by the slugger with the highest salary, and there is no place to protect. Because there is a possibility as a pitcher. If you really want to play MLB, the batter should give up early. "[288].

    From 1, the first season of MLB, he insisted that he should concentrate on pitchers.[289]Seeing his success as a batter in 2021, he said, "My expectations were wrong."[289]..However, he continues to recommend that he concentrate on pitchers, saying, "The only condition that you can become the best pitcher in the world is if you concentrate on pitchers. I still think so, and I appreciate it as a pitcher. is"[289], "At the moment, the fastball, which is highly reproducible due to his physical strength, is unrivaled in the majors, and the split is definitely the best in the ball world. If you concentrate on the pitcher, there are three changing balls that represent the ball world. I feel like I'm a pitcher like that. "[289]It has said.Also, if you concentrate on the pitcherJacob DeGrom(2018, 2019Sai Young AwardYou can be a pitcher like a pitcher)[290].


    After the opening of the first year of Otani, "Otani has been able to handle the ball of a professional pitcher immediately after the opening" "It is not a hit of a high school graduate rookie. He is a real genius." If you are wearing a ball that you can take as a weapon, you can go with one pitcher, but if you feel that you can not suppress it unless you mainly throw a ball that hesitates with a changing ball, I recommend you to take the plunge and make it one batter. I think I can be a "first-class pitcher", but I want you to think that it is not as good as the "monster" of the Noshige / Matsuzaka class. If so, I want you to concentrate on the batter. " I recommended devotion to all hitters[291]..However, after the end of the first year, he mocked "both swordsmen" and "what did you want to do, like you?" If you become a batter, you can't. "[292].

    Based on the assumption that "I have to be in either direction," I rate it as "I want to be a batter every day if I'm a director," and "the distance is great."[293].

    Although he agrees with the two-sword style, he is a home run batter comparable to or better than Hideki Matsui in Japan, and is said to have the potential to hit more than 50 batters if he concentrates on the batter.From the point that it is excellent in running base and can hit a home runBarry BondsSays he's a type of batter[294].

    Dual wield denial

    Although he opposes the dual wield method, Otani's pitcher and batter's abilities are highly evaluated, and if he concentrates on either one, it will be easier to update the season record.I am developing my theory[Source required].


    Have dual wield experienceBrooks Keishnik"When I come to MLB, I won't let you do both. If you do both, you'll get a lot of things. For example, what if you hit your ankle or toe with a broken ball? Especially 500 to 2000 million a year. It's impossible for someone who earns dollars. "[295][296].

    I was a dual wield player when I was in collegeJohn Orludo"Probably a professional team would want to protect Otani if ​​he could throw 100 miles, and he would want to do it as a pitcher, because if he did, he would have to throw from an unreasonable position. There are times. What if I hurt my arm at that time? "[295][296].. However, in 2 off when the Best Nine was won in two categories, the MLB organization reports on Otani's double award as "Birth of a Legend" on the official website.[297][298]There were also MLB teams paying attention to Otani with the appointment of "dual wield" in mind.[299].

    Japan Professional Baseball MeetupAs of 2021, the membership conditions for (Meikyukai) are 200 wins, 250 saves, and 2000 hits, but they do not consider the dual wield style of Otani.for that reasonAtsushi FurutaThe vice-president said, "To put it in an extreme way, when Otani hits 1000 hits and wins 100, it's not worth it as a Meikyukai. That's only half of the rules, but it's amazing. My 2000 I'm doing more than a hit. I wonder if I'll deal with that situation. "[300].




    In the form of comparison with Darvish, which Otani himself was aiming for when he was an amateur,Michinoku's DarvishWas called.

    After transferring to MLB, the English notation Shohei Ohtani was shortened to "ShortaniWas called by the fans[304].. afterwards,show time(SHOWTIME[304]OrSHOTIME[305]) Was born, but it was unpopular at first.[304]..However, after that, it became a popular nickname such as being selected as the 8th best nickname.[305].

    In addition, when the MLB first home run was recorded in April 2018, the Angels exclusive live commentary(English editionShouted "Big fly, Ohtani-san!", Which became a big topic in sports newspapers in Japan.[306]..Since then, Rojas has used the name "Ohtani-san" "only when Otani hit a home run" ("Big fly" was originally used).Therefore, even after Rojas retired from the actual situation, when Otani played an active part in the game, etc.OtanisanIs popular as one of the nicknames, such as entering the trend.

When I set the goal of 160km / h, some people said, "I think it's impossible," but when I said that, I felt like I would definitely do it.I had the idea that it would be stimulating or motivating.

I think it's better to get used to it while you are young, including that meaning. So I'm not worried."[307]..Regarding Otani's dual wield play, experts highly appreciate and agree with the above-mentioned activities.[309].
