Shohei Ohtani: Pitcher, hitter ... and moonwalker?

We know that Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani is talented at just about everything. What wasn't quite known is that, as it turns out, Ohtani is also a sneaky good dancer, too.

At a recent fan fest for his NPB team, the Nippon-Ham Fighters, Ohtani and some of his teammates played charades. That led to him referencing a star of a different kind -- Michael Jackson:

Yes, Ohtani can moonwalk. That's amazing.

The question has to be asked, though -- can Ohtani dance as well as the Cubs' bullpen?


We might have to wait until next season to find out. He'll just have to hope that David Ross isn't coaching them.
