Shohei Ohtani (30, LA Dodgers), who agreed to a 10-year, historic contract worth $700 million with the Los Angeles Dodgers ahead of this season, was certain to reign as the biggest star of the Seoul Series. Cloudy reporters flocked from Korea, the U.S., and Japan, and Otani’s every move was followed. Fans were also willing to accept expensive tickets to see Ohtani. Ohtani’s relatively normal performance also drew cheers from fans. Not all good things happened, however. There were incidents, both happening and unsavory. With Ohtani engulfing all issues, the Seoul Series ended like that, and Ohtani left Korea.

The “2024 Major League World Tour Seoul Series” between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres ended with one win and one loss in the official opening game of the 2024 Major League held on the 20th and 21st. The Major League World Tour, which the Major League Secretariat is pushing for globalization of baseball, was held for the first time in Seoul this year, and the secretariat drew great attention as it selected the two teams that were highly recognized by Korean fans and recently had a rivalry in the National League West as its lineup. Since the Seoul Series was confirmed, Shohei Ohtani, Yoshinobu Yamamoto (L.A. Dodgers), Ko Woo-seok and Yuki Matsui (San Diego) have joined the respective teams, raising fans’ attention. A large number of fans and reporters also flocked to Japan, which allowed the series to run on the box office. The two teams moved to Incheon International Airport shortly after the second round ended on the 21st to hurriedly leave for the U.S. to prepare for the Major League mainland game.

The showdown between the two teams ended fairly with one win and one loss, drawing keen attention from many people. As it was the opening game of the Major League regular season, local fans in the U.S. were enthusiastic about it. Shohei Ohtani, however, received the biggest spotlight as expected. Having had elbow surgery late last year, Ohtani was initially uncertain about his participation in the opening game of the Seoul Series, but he is confident about his participation in the opening game from the start of spring training, raising expectations for the upcoming series. He played two normal games as he said, opening up his Dodgers career vigorously. 노래방알바
