When Ichiro Was a Hooters Girl

September 2, 2001: After going 1-for-4 in a 1-0 Mariner win in Baltimore, Ichiro returned to his locker to find his street clothes missing. They were replaced with the signature white tank top and orange hot pants of a Hooters girl. Along with the other ’01 Mariner rookies subject to the hazing, Ichiro had to wear the getup on the flight back to Seattle.

According to Sports Illustrated, “He vamped the whole way.”

The Hooters uniform is now on display in the Ichiro Exhibition Room, the Nagoya museum maintained by his father.
