Ohtani Shohei (29‧ LA Angels) played as the designated hitter in the match against Boston held at Fenway Park on the 17th (Korean time) as the starting 3rd, but only had no hits in 4 at-bats.

Not only did he not hit, but he also did not get 4 balls, so he did not get on base even once that day. It was hard to see this in Ohtani’s matches recently. Ohtani had been on base for 36 consecutive games before the game.

Ohtani has been on base in every game since the game against Houston on September 12 last year. However, he failed to reach base on this day, and the record ended at ’36’. Ohtani had to settle for his longest personal streak on base. During this period, Ohtani recorded a batting average of 0.319, an on-base percentage of 0.387, 4 homers, 18 RBIs, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.868.

The 36 consecutive games on base itself is actually amazing. He had 369 consecutive on-base appearances of 36 or more games in major league history. As a Japanese player, he became the third player to reach base in 36 or more consecutive games, following Ichiro Suzuki and Hideki Matsui (36 games).

However, in this opportunity, they failed to break the Japanese and Asian records. It’s an opportunity that doesn’t come more often than you think, and even if you go on base again, it’s not an easy difficulty in that you have to go on base for almost two months. 먹튀검증

The Japanese record is held by Ichiro. Ichiro had a streak of 38 on-base streaks in 2001 and 2004, and 40 consecutive on-base streaks between April 30 and June 14, 2004. His own best is 43 matches. Ichiro had 43 consecutive on-base appearances from April 29 to June 15, 2009, during which time he had a batting average of 0.374 and an on-base percentage of 0.417. This record is tied for 129th in major league history.

However, there is an Asian record that Ichiro has not reached, and that is Choo Shin-soo (41‧ SSG). Shin-soo Choo went on base at least once in all 52 games between May 14 and July 21, 2018, when he was with Texas. Choo Shin-soo went out in 249 at-bats during the period and recorded a batting average of 0.337, an on-base percentage of 0.468, a slugging percentage of 0.588, and an OPS of 1.056. It was far ahead of Ichiro’s Asian record.
