Before he breaks the bank, Shohei Ohtani broke Citi Field — or at least a bulb in the Queens ballpark.
In the first inning of Saturday night’s game between the Mets and the Anaheim Ohtanis, the biggest superstar in the sport crushed a pitch from Carlos Carrasco down the right-field line.
The ball had plenty of distance but hooked into foul territory — where it cracked into an auxiliary video board and left a mark.
The bulb the ball struck was knocked out, leaving a pane absent from a screen that is primarily used for advertising.
Ohtani, who is hitting despite learning this week he has a torn UCL in his elbow that is keeping him from pitching and might require surgery, shook off the foul ball and blasted a 109.6-mph double into right-center.
As he pulled into second base, he heard loud cheers from a crowd that is amazed by his every move.
He followed that with an RBI triple in the second inning.
The two-way unicorn will be the biggest free agent in baseball history after this season.
If he signs with the Mets, maybe Steve Cohen can take the bill from that bulb out of Ohtani’s first paycheck.
