The moments Ohtani, Vlad Jr. and Tatis Jr. truly arrived (1:44)

Check out the moments MLB's newest superstars Shohei Ohtani, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Fernando Tatis Jr. made their mark on the league. (1:44)

Shohei Ohtani strolled through the American League dugout in the sixth inning of the All-Star Game, all of his heavy lifting seemingly behind him. The night before, his Home Run Derby round had lingered into double overtime, leaving him completely exhausted and bent at the waist, and in the matchup of All-Stars, he had pitched an inning and taken a couple of at-bats. He had worn a microphone and talked to Joe Buck and John Smoltz on Fox, and then went live on national television in Japan.
