BREAKING: Shohei Ohtani Makes His Decision: For Real


The Shohei Ohtani Frenzy is over. He has posted his decision on Instagram, announcing that he is joining the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The deal is for 10 years, and an unprecedented $700M. It's believed to be the largest contract in sports history.

Ohtani wrote on his IG, "To all the fans and everyone involved in the baseball world, I apologize for taking so long to come to a decision. I have decided to choose the Dodgers as my next team."

Insiders are reporting that the massive contract includes “unprecedented deferrals” making up the majority of his salary, and his agent is saying this was Shohei’s idea in order to allow the Dodgers the flexibility to spend and stay as competitive as possible.
