In his Instagram caption, Ohtani expressed not only his enthusiasm for the career transition to the Dodgers but also the commencement of a new life with a special someone from his native Japan.

The unexpected marriage revelation, characteristic of Ohtani’s tendency to drop major news via social media, even caught the Dodgers off guard, according to The Athletic’s Fabian Ardaya. This continued a pattern set by Ohtani, who previously disclosed his record-breaking $700 million deal with the Dodgers through a similar abrupt announcement on Instagram.

In subsequent interactions with reporters in Arizona, Ohtani offered a bit more insight into his newly revealed wife. Describing her as a “normal Japanese woman” without celebrity status, he noted a three to four-year acquaintance.

While discreet about the wedding date, Ohtani emphasized that their relationship had no influence on his decision to join the Dodgers, a move fully supported by his wife. He further revealed that they got engaged last year, and she is currently accompanying him during spring training.

This announcement came just days after Shohei Ohtani‘s triumphant spring training debut with the Dodgers, where he displayed his exceptional hitting prowess.

The Dodgers’ season opener against the San Diego Padres in South Korea on March 20 adds an extra layer of anticipation, with fans speculating whether Ohtani’s newlywed wife might be in attendance for this momentous occasion.
