650 (!) million euros: Los Angeles Dodgers win the largest contract in the history of North American sports | More sports

Shohei Ohtani has been wild since leaving the LA Angels. A Japanese is known as a person who can perform both as a pitcher (thrower of the ball) and as a hitter (the person who hits the ball into the field with a baseball bat). Few can perform both roles well, which has already earned Ohtani comparison to icons like Babe Ruth and Bullet Rogan.

The question of where Ohtani will land before 2024 has preoccupied American fans for a long time. The Toronto Blue Jays were mentioned, but Ohtani picked the Los Angeles Dodgers — the 2020 World Series winners. The Dodgers are owned by Guggenheim Baseball Management, a consortium that includes Chelsea owner Todd Buhle, former tennis star Billie Jean King and former NBA player Billie Jean King. Magic Johnson as the biggest name.

Ohtani’s deal includes a staggering €650 million. This is the largest sports contract ever entered into in the history of North American sports. The previous record in world baseball was held by Los Angeles Angels player Mark Trout, whose current contract is worth 371 million euros.

Ohtani will earn nearly 300 million euros more than his former colleague over ten years. Surprisingly, the Japanese will definitely not play next year due to a serious elbow surgery. With the addition of Ohtani, the Dodgers want to make another attempt at winning a World Series, on paper they have one of the best offensive lineups with Ohtani.
