Dodgers sign Ohtani for historic $700M

Shohei Ohtani (pictured), the Japanese two-way player and 2023 American League MVP, signed a monumental deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

"To all Dodgers fans, I pledge to always do what’s best for the team and always continue to give it my all to be the best version of myself. Until the last day of my playing career, I want to continue to strive forward not only for the Dodgers but for the baseball world," Ohtani wrote in an Instagram post.

The LA-based baseball club signed Ohtani for a record 10 years and $700 million. The contract is considered to be the biggest ever in sports history, breaking football superstar Lionel Messi's record deal with Barcelona, which was valued at $674 million.
