When you're as legendary a player as Ichiro Suzuki, you get many impersonators. Sometimes two at a time in two different uniforms. And why not? He may be the coolest man alive.
Over the weekend, some fantastic footage from a few years back was unearthed of a fake Ichiro bringing his impression to a youth baseball game. Although he strikes out -- something very un-Ichiro-like -- his stance, toe-taps, pauses, stretches and mannerisms are all very spot-on.
The Fake Ichiro dude once played against a boys' baseball team and it is legitimately one of the funniest things I've ever watched. He really nailed Ichiro's body language down. pic.twitter.com/cnuEDjEvYa- Sung Min Kim (@sung_minkim) December 1, 2017
Hopefully this helps get the real Ichiro signed very soon.
