Taylor Swift is theoretically back in the dating pool after her seven year relationship came to an end. One of her potential suitors is certainly notable.
Emma Baccellieri from Sports Illustrated tweeted out that she received a press release with odds for Swift’s next boyfriend. What made that list notable was the inclusion of Los Angeles Angels star Shohei Ohtani.
Los Angeles star Shohei Ohtani making baseball relevant again
Baseball was once America’s Pastime. It captured everyone’s imagination, the players were household names. The universe seemingly stopped when the games began. But those days have faded in the past, with the NFL and NBA both overtaking major league baseball. In fact, it is fair to say that college football has a more rabid following than the majors at this point.
But Ohtani has changed that. He has become a household name, a true unicorn in his ability to dominate with the bat and upon the mound. His dominance has helped draw fans back into the game as he has become the crossover star that the game has been missing. One may need to go back to Derek Jeter to find a player who captivated both baseball fans and the back pages of the tabloids.
Chances are, Ohtani and Swift are not going to be getting together. He is dedicated to furthering his craft on the mound and in the batter’s box and likely would not want the distractions. It is, however, fun to speculate about. And, apparently, something that one could put a few bucks on. Who knew that sort of thing would have its own betting pool and a list of odds?
Los Angeles Angels unicorn Shohei Ohtani has become a true superstar. He is on the betting list of potential suitors for Taylor Swift. He is making baseball cool once again.
