Shohei Ohtani is officially a member of the Angels. The team hosted a press conference for the two-way player that was open to the public, and it couldn't have gone better. Ohtani spoke to the media with grace and a bit of humor, but made sure to ask the public for help on an important subject.
During the baseball world's introduction to Ohtani at Angel Stadium on Saturday, he asked fans for some help to come up with a nickname for him:

So what could the possibilities be? Goatani? Sho-time? Sho-hei Kid? There aren't any official ways you can cast your vote yet, but until that day comes, you can always leave suggestions in the comments below, or tweet us.
May the best nickname win.
