Video: Shohei Ohtani humorously mimics opponent’s pitching motion
Shohei Ohtani had some fun with an opponent this week.
The Los Angeles Angels just got done hosting the Houston Astros for a 3-game series in Anaheim. Before one of the games, Ohtani was recorded on video mimicking the pitching motion of Houston hurler Luis Garcia. Garcia seemed to enjoy the impression.
Take a look.

That was pretty solid. Here is what Garcia’s motion looks like. John Smoltz described it as “rocks the baby, then does the salsa.”
That is a pretty accurate description.
It’s unclear when this video was recorded.
Garcia pitched the opener in the series, which Houston won 6-5. Ohtani pitched the following game, giving the Angels the win.
Ohtani may have a quiet personality, but he sure knows how to joke.
