In a gesture of camaraderie, Shohei Ohtani reciprocates Joe Kelly's jersey number concession with a luxurious surprise – a sleek Porsche handed over to Kelly and revealed in an Instagram video.

Kelly, known for his wife's #Ohtake17 campaign during Ohtani's free agency, had playfully tossed his No. 17 Dodgers gear in a video shared on social media when the number exchange became official.

When asked about parting with his iconic jersey number, Kelly responded with humor, stating, "If Shohei keeps performing, he'll be a future Hall of Famer, and I'll be able to have my number retired. That's the closest I'll get to the Hall of Fame."

Details about Kelly's wishlist for the exchange remain undisclosed, but the extravagant gift from Ohtani underscores the generous spirit of the newly-signed Dodgers sensation, whose recent contract stands at an impressive $700 million. (Source: MLB)
