About the Author

Jeff Fletcher has covered Major League Baseball since 1997, including eight seasons on the Los Angeles Angels beat for the Orange County Register, and has covered Shohei Ohtani more than any other writer in the United States. Jeff has also covered the San Francisco Giants and Oakland A's and worked as a national baseball writer. He is a Hall of Fame voter and has served as chairman of the Los Angeles chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America since 2015. He lives in Los Angeles, California.


"Shohei is unique, obviously, someone we have never seen before. What he does and how he does it so easily is just different. But such a big part of who he is [ his] pure joy for the game and the competition. [...] With all of the success he's had, he still has that joy. [...] That's Shohei: always competing and having fun doing it."
--from the foreword by Joe Maddon, World Series champion and former Los Angeles Angels Manager
"Shohei Ohtani was the biggest story of the 2021 season, and perhaps any season. In Sho-Time,
Jeff Fletcher masterfully chronicles not only what Ohtani accomplished
in '21, but also provides the full context to his achievements. From
Ohtani's origin story in Japan to his recruitment by the Angels, his
injury-marred 2019 and '20 seasons to his place in history next to Babe
Ruth, Fletcher's book is the definitive look at Ohtani's two-way
majesty." --Ken Rosenthal
