Just as there is no American equivalent to Shohei Ohtani the ballplayer, there is no American equivalent to Shohei Ohtani the brand. Asics literally sponsors every single equipment item in Sho’s bag. Bat, glove, cleats, armor, mittens, bath robe… its all Asics for Ohtani.
The “Gold Stage” label is ever-present throughout, including the striking red Asics glove that Ohtani pitches with. The craftsmanship on Ohtani’s glove is a sight to behold, and even Sho’s handler/translator (pictured) has a sick little catching piece. Ohtani’s is a special order, but you can shop some similar gloves on Rakuten at the link.
