Shohei Ohtani’s contract leads list of unusual sports clauses


- Advertisment -

MLB superstar Shohei Ohtani rocked the sports world in signing a 10-year, $700 million contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers. The 29-year-old pitcher and power hitter’s record contract came with a few unusual conditions, not the least of which is $680 million getting deferred until after the 10-year contract is up.

But that’s not the only oddity in Ohtani’s deal. Here’s a look at what else it includes – plus a few other unusual clauses in contracts from other sports.

What clauses are in Shohei Ohtani’s contract?

Ohtani can opt-out of the record-breaking contract if either Dodgers owner Mark Walter or president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman leave the organization during the 10-year duration of the deal. One MLB executive told USA TODAY Sports this is the first time that provision is included in a player contract.
