The deal resulted in a moment of surprise. Japanese talent Shohei Ohtani has signed the most lucrative deal ever to play baseball with the Los Angeles Dodgers. But there's still one thing missing: his beloved number 17. It belonged to Joe Kelly until the Japanese reached a deal with his wife, which gave her a brand-new Porsche.
“close…!?That's all that came out of her mouth as she opened her front door.
There was a shiny new Porsche. “A gift from Shohei Ohtani,” my husband shares with me, smiling.
The 29-year-old Japanese signed the most lucrative deal ever in Major League Baseball, early last December, worth 650 million euros over 10 years.
Ohtani ultimately chose the LA Dodgers, thanks in part to Ashley Kelly's #Ohtake17 campaign to lure the all-rounder. She got rid of her husband Joe's jersey number, because it's also Ohtani's favorite number.
He clearly appreciates this lobbying work. From now on, Ashley can drive to competitions in a flashy car.
