We asked three 7th grade students and Mr. Szalka about a famous MLB pitcher and hitter Shohei Otani. The first person we asked was the teacher Mr. Szalka. Every question we asked him he got right. And the right answers we will tell you at the end. The second person we asked was Snehith John, he had no idea what number he was, what team he was on, didn’t know if he was from the U. S, and he did not even know if he was a person. The fourth person we asked was Josh Asaro. He heard of Shohei but just could not remember. Everything else he guessed was WRONG but very close.
