Los Angeles Angels star Shohei Ohtani's fan club includes Arizona Cardinals' J.J. Watt

Los Angeles Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani has been known to turn professionals into fans.

Last season's unanimous American League MVP has a notable addition to his fan club -- Arizona Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt.

The Angels had a busy offseason, bolstering a roster that already includes Ohtani, Mike Trout and Anthony Rendon by signing free-agent pitchers Noah Syndergaard, Michael Lorenzen and Ryan Tepera.

Watt put in a special request to see the new-look Angels in person because their spring training facility, Tempe Diablo Stadium, is close to the Cardinals star's home.

The Angels obliged and a few days later, he was front row at the game.

As luck would have it, the game was against the Milwaukee Brewers, so Watt, a Wisconsin native, was able to see his hometown team.
