A major US sports magazine published two versions of a cover featuring Japanese two-way baseball star Ohtani Shohei.
The October issue of Sports Illustrated, which hit the shelves Thursday, features the Los Angeles Angels star hitting and pitching the two covers. Both versions use “SHOTIME”, a play on words that celebrates its excellence.
A caption reads, “He’s not the new baby Ruth. He’s more amazing than that.” The magazine contains a 10-page feature story about Ohtani.
Sports Illustrated was first published in 1954. Ohtani was already on the cover of the magazine. However, this is the first time he has appeared on two different covers of the same issue.
