Angels star Shohei Ohtani tops Ronald Acuña Jr. for top-selling jersey this season

Sep 30, 2023

Los Angeles Angels star Shohei Ohtani was the most popular player in Major League Baseball this season.

The top-20 list is based on the sale of Nike jerseys through since Opening Day. Ohtani had finished inside the top 10 twice since he joined MLB, most recently in 2021, but this was the first time he led the league.

The Angels’ two-way star underwent an unspecified elbow procedure earlier this month, which ended his sixth MLB season early. It’s unclear if he underwent Tommy John surgery, though Ohtani did tear his UCL last month, which led to speculation that he would need a second Tommy John surgery.
