Ichiro’s Fans #5

Back in ’01, some guy wore this giant homemade Ichiro head to a game at Safeco Field.

Looks like he got some autographs on its face.

Chicks Dig the Foul Ball

At least when Ichiro crashes into them.

It was one year ago today that Ichiro reached into the stands along Safeco’s right-field foul line to grab a Mark Teixeira fly when his outstretched arm collided with 17-year-old Aris Skinner. Though Ichiro didn’t make the catch, Skinner went bananas, and the clip became an instant highlight-reel classic.

Later in the game, the Fox Sports Northwest TV broadcasters sent Skinner a complimentary Ichiro jersey. Later still, she told a Japanese reporter that Ichiro had asked her if she was OK.

“It was awesome,” Skinner said. “I am literally starstruck.”
