Los Angeles Dodgers star Shohei Ohtani recently revealed the identity of his wife, and the two have now made a formal public appearance together.

Ohtani and his wife, Mamiko Tanaka, attended the eighth annual Blue Diamond Gala on Thursday night. The event raises money for the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation. Ohtani and Tanaka posed for some photos together at the start of the evening.

Ohtani, 29, revealed back in February that he had gotten married. While he did not share his wife’s name at the time, he described her as “a normal Japanese woman” and said he has known her for 3-4 years.

Roughly two weeks later, Ohtani shared a photo of himself with Tanaka on Instagram.

After some incorrect speculation about her identity, we have since learned that Tanaka is a 27-year-old professional basketball player in Japan. She has played for both Waseeda University and the Fujitsu Red Wave of the Women’s Japan Basketball League. Tanaka is listed online at 5-foot-11 and plays the power forward-center postion.

Ohtani and Tanaka are definitely in the running for the world’s most athletic couple.
