With this violent connection, the 2021 AL MVP winner joined Babe Ruth as the only players to have 100 home runs and 250 strikeouts (as a pitcher).

In addition, Ohtani became the third Japanese to reach triple digits for home runs in the majors. Hideki Matsui and Ichiro Suzuki are the other two Japanese who are part of the club.
