Shohei Ohtani is a star in the making.
Ohtani is a once-in-a-generation talent and is set to break some records along the way, especially after his season last year in which he put up historic numbers on his way to winning American League MVP honors.
His former teammate, pitcher Alex Cobb, says that he is laser focused on breaking records, with the right-hander stating that Ohtani has literally asked him about world records in baseball.
Alex Cobb said he trained with Shohei Ohtani for a few weeks over the offseason. "When he trains, he wants to beat the world record. That's not exaggerating. He'll ask, `What's the world record?'"

Cobb can certainly attest to Ohtani’s desire for success, having trained with him this past offseason.
