Perhaps one of the more brilliant social media campaigns came from Ashley Kelly, the wife of Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly. Ashley began the “#Ohtake17 Campaign” which took social media by storm, where she offered up her husband’s No. 17 as part of her pitch to Ohtani.

A wonderful gift, from Shohei Claus, on this Christmas.
