History was made in the second inning of opening day, March 29, 2018 game between the Angels and the Athletics. Batting Eighth, Shohei Ohtani made his major league debut as the designated hitter for the Angels. It took one pitch for him to live up to the hype when he hit a 91.5 MPH cutter from Kendall Graveman into right field for a single. This was the first career hit in the Major Leagues for Ohtani. This was the start of a season that saw the Ohtani go on to hit 22 home runs, and pitch 51.2 innings. The last time a player had more than 15 home runs and 50 innings pitched in the same season were Babe Ruth in 1919. This was the only hit of the game of Ohtani, who went 1 for 5. Meanwhile, the Athletics and Angels battled for 11 innings until Marcus Semien hit a single with runners in on the corners to give Oakland a walk-off win. Also playing in this game were two superstars who appear to be destined for Cooperstown one day. Mike Trout batted 0 for 6 in this game. Meanwhile, Albert Pujols has a slightly better day, batting 2 for 6, with one of those hits being his first home run of the season. This baseball was used in the bottom of the ninth inning for three pitches from Blake Treinen to Zack Cozart for two balls, and a foul ball to take this baseball out of the game. Three pitched later, Zack Cozart struck out to end the top of the ninth inning.
