Towel draped over his left shoulder, Shohei Ohtani walks across the diamond after completing his first official workout as a member of the Angels. Despite a steady rain throughout, fans show their appreciation for the Japanese phenom and Ohtani responds with a hand gesture.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

Shohei Ohtani just took his first rounds of batting practice in a steady rain on a back field at Tempe Diablo Stadium. He hit a few solid line drives to the outfield and some medium fly balls in his first two turns in the cage. Then he loosened up and cranked some balls over the fence. It's a nice, fluid swing.
