Ohtani was selected as the first Japanese player to participate in the Home Run Derby, where he also became the first one in All-Star Game history to be selected as both a pitcher and a hitter.
ESPN reports Ohtani donated the $150,000 he received to more than a couple of dozen people, including clubhouse staff, trainers and members of the media relations department.
The two-way Japanese sensation handed out the checks before the Angels’ game Friday night against the Seattle Mariners, the outlet reports.
Ohtani threw a perfect first inning and was 0-for-2 in the AL’s 5-2 victory on Tuesday. He was the top seed in Monday’s derby but was eliminated in the first round after he lost a swing-off to Washington’s Juan Soto.
