With two single beds set up in the main area and the two players’ jerseys set up over each bed, the room looks comfortable with a TV, desk, and couch. The brown and grey theme is soothing, but the real attraction is out of the balcony. With glass railings surrounding the corner, one can see the huge ballpark at the back. The room is right at the edge of it, with a perfect view to watch a game should anyone be inclined to do so.

The Japanese team is looking strong for World Baseball Classic

Ohtani is revered by anyone who has seen him play, regardless of their allegiance to the Angels. A two-way phenom, the 28-year-old returns to Japan after six long years to lead the team. Darvish is a veteran pitcher who was part of the 2009 winning WBC team, so chances are looking good.
