18 44 93 | Shohei Ohtani's first career home run on the 93rd day of the year, and the comparisons to Babe Ruth (George Herman Ruth = 93)

Read this prior post:

This man Shohei Ohtani tied a pitching record with 18 swinging strikes by opponents in his MLB debut.

Baseball = 18 (18 half innings in baseball)

I got to see his first at home at-bat where he homered.  A few pitches before the home run, the announcer was sure to blurt out that it was the Cleveland pitcher's 33rd pitch of the game.  Of course, he did not say the number of the pitch count for any other pitch.

Also, that hit came on April 3, the 93rd day of the year.

George Herman Ruth = 93 (He is being compared to Babe Ruth for pitching and hitting)
Japan = 93; *Atomic Bomb = 93

The second home run comes on April 4, or 4/4. 

Asian = 44
Shohei Ohtani = 193 (193, the 44th prime)
