Japanese baseball star Shohei Otani has a message for the Tokyo Dome constructors: you didn't put the roof high enough.

That much became clear when Otani, competing in Japan's World Baseball Classic game against the Netherlands, hit the ball a bit too high, losing it to the roof panels.

Was this a home run?

Well, unfortunately for Otani, who is regarded as one of the best baseball players outside MLB, it was ruled as a ground-rule double instead.

Seems like such unconventional shots deserve more, but what do you think?
