Shohei Otani (Los Angeles Dodgers)’s dog ‘Decopin’, which became a hot topic in the Major League Baseball (MLB) Stove League this winter, received a US visa.On the 11th, U.S. Ambassador to Japan Rahm Emanuel introduced a photo on social media of giving Otani an event visa for his dog.Ohtani recently visited the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo, Japan, and Ambassador Emanuel prepared a special event to celebrate the signing with the Dodgers.
The U.S. Embassy in Japan attracted attention by creating a fake visa with a witty expression. The passport number was written as ‘000MVPUP000’, a combination of the Most Valuable Player Award (MVP) that Otani received last season and puppy (puppy), and the control number was written as ‘000GOODBOY000’ (good boy, good guy).
Ohtani attracted attention by holding a dog during a video interview for the American League MVP award last year.In the United States, there was speculation that Otani, who was a free agent, would name the dog as his next destination.After signing a huge contract with the Dodgers for 10 years and a total of $700 million, Ohtani was asked a related question at the press conference upon joining the team and revealed that his pet dog’s name was 스포츠토토존 ‘Decopin’.Produced by: Gong Byeong-seol and Park Jong-hyuk
