29-year-old Ohtani sat in his living room with a beagle by his side on the couch while the MVP announcement was broadcasted. The young pup rolled around playfully, seemingly oblivious to the significance of the moment, but it was nothing new for the Angels pitcher.
After the announcement was made, Ohtani proudly displayed his puppy’s talents by requesting a high-five and immediately receiving one.
Following in the program, Ohtani showcased some additional tricks from his puppy, and he gave him a treat for each one.

Ohtani proudly held his puppy on his lap throughout the entire broadcast, even making the puppy the star during the celebration. It’s clear that Ohtani is a proud puppy parent.
Ohtani acknowledged that his rehab is progressing more smoothly than his previous surgery, but he is not in a hurry as his main focus is on regaining full physical fitness.
