The pitcher of the White Sox de Chicago, Mike Wright, was expelled from the game after hitting a ball at Shohei Ohtani in the MLB.
Through the Anaheim Angels vs. Anaheim Angels game, Mike Wright was a little out of control and a 90-mile fastball landed on the right leg of Shohei Ohtani, but before that another launch also happened near the body of the Japanese.
