When Ichiro & Team Japan Won the WBC

ichiro131319
That would be both World Baseball Classic tournaments before the 2013 edition, in 2006 and 2009. However, the stress of the latter tourney left Ichiro with a bleeding ulcer. He decided to sit out this year’s event, in which Team Japan got knocked out in the semifinals, thus ending Japan’s WBC mini-dynasty.

Coincidence? I think not.
