More Home Opener Stuff

I’m still woozy this morning following Cleveland’s brutal ten-run fourth last night, but I did have fun collecting a few new Ichiro bits during the game… Like, these new (to me) fun facts flashed across the jumbo video screen during Ichiro’s at-bats: “Favorite Color: Aqua Blue” and “Favorite Meal: Dinner”… I couldn’t quite identify Ichiro’s at-bat music, but Eliza seemed to think it was Rihanna’s “S&M” (yikes!)… Beforehand I picked up the latest Grand Salami, with Ichiro and King Felix sharing the cover… The baseball museum has added an Ichiro locker display next to the Griffey one (which I think was there last year)…

Besides a couple jerseys and other stuff, it includes former manager Bob Melvin’s lineup card from the 2004 night when Ichiro tied, then broke George Sisler’s single-season hits record…

The ball from Ichiro’s 262nd and final hit that year…

An elbow pad (with Mike Cameron and Omar Vizquel reflected in the glass)…

Spikes, batting gloves, and wristbands…

Elsewhere, this nice lady modeled her custom Ichiro cap for me…

And the ultra-hip dude up at the top? I snuck up behind him to snap this picture of his custom Ichiro jacket.
