“It was just overkill on this baseball in our opinion. I wasn’t upset. It was sort of, ‘Come on you guys!’”

Shohei Ohtani beat the hundredth home game of his career against the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night. The baseball world came to life with tweets and other social media posts praising the Los Angeles Angels superstar for the achievement.

As has been the case for some time, many hail Ohtani as the greatest player of his generation. He’s definitely the most talented, and not many people dispute his productivity. But some baseball fans seem to have grown weary of all the “Shohei Ohtani chatter.”

Last Saturday night, many thought former NFL reporter Michele Tafoya was one of them.

“@Angels broadcast… Enough with baseball chat @Ohtani!!! @BallySportWest” – @Michele Tafoya

Apparently Tafoya was watching the Angels vs Athletics match, but seemed displeased with Shohei Ohtani talking about Shohei Ohtani away. She seemed annoyed. Many people who responded to her tweet criticized what appeared to be anti-Ohtani negatives. However, Tafoya countered his intentions in a tweet today.

In Ryan Glasspiegel’s New York Post article about the incident, Tafoya explained that she did not get tired of hearing about Ohtani. Instead, she got tired of hearing about the actual baseball he hit in his hundredth home run. She also explained in a tweet today, in which she said “physical baseball’s coverage is a little bit less.”

Really? If you re-read the tweet, I’ve said enough of Ohtani’s talk about “baseball”. IMHO, the show was overbroadcast when it came to showing actual BOLD – maybe more than they showed Ohtani. The home track is awesome, physical baseball coverage is a bit off.

Tafoya goes on to explain this in New York Post thing. She said she was watching the game with her husband and son, both of whom have played high-level baseball at one point or another in their lives. Apparently, the Angels’ broadcast feed couldn’t have enough baseballs that Ohtani hit in his home game.

“We laughed because they kept talking about this baseball and how someone brought it to their booth, and people took pictures of it, over and over again,” said Tafoya. “In our view, it’s just overkill in this baseball game. I’m not upset. It’s kind of like, ‘Come on, guys!'”

With those words, Tafoya may have saved himself from the baseball fandom’s cancellation. MLB fans adore Shohei Ohtani. In their eyes, anyone who doesn’t clearly appreciate the superstar. But Tafoya explained that she wasn’t referring to Ohtani – just baseball’s excessive coverage.

“It was even more ironic. It’s like ‘We watch baseball.’ The moment itself is a great moment! This guy is unbelievable. Ohtani is a strange miracle. He is amazing.”

Good enough, Tafoya. The baseball world will accept her back into the pack.
