Is the “multi-sword style” following Otani coming out and entering a new era of MLB?
The most talked about in the 2021 ball world was “OOTANI”, and when it came to live time, it was probably “SHO TIME”.
Seeing the success of Shohei Ohtani, the author called it “three-sword style” because the two-sword style was not enough, but it was not widely disseminated.
The person who picked it up also said, “This season (Otani), who left a record, the” dual wield “was emphasized again.
There was also an expression that included running baseball as “three-sword style”, but it is not Roronoa Zoro of the manga “ONE PIECE”, and it is not possible to hold one sword in the mouth “(” Sankei Shimbun It ended up with an expression such as “I want to talk more about baseball” by Ikuro Beppu on December 12, 3rd year of Reiwa.
Isao Harimoto, a baseball critic, said about Otani, “I did a lot. I hit, ran, threw, and slipped. There is no such player! No matter what, I’m a first-class player.” (TBS) said.
The dual wield of “throw and hit” is not enough.
In the past, Yokoi Shonan disagreed with the widely used “Bunbu Ryodo”.

In recent years, it seems that two birds with one stone are not enough as an expression, and it is often expressed as three birds with one stone, and in some cases even five birds with one stone.
Even from these cases, Otani’s great success is not enough even with dual wield or triple wield. The author once again thinks that “multi-sword style” is suitable, but how about it?
