Even if you’re not a baseball fan, this video is really cool. Takes a little of the sting out of a bad season, losing to the NY Yankees at home, and trading Cliff Lee to the Texas Rangers.
A teenage fan sitting in a seat near the right-field foul line at Safeco Field had an interesting “meeting” with Ichiro Suzuki in the first inning Thursday night.
The Mariners game against the Yankees was not even two batters old when Mark Teixeira hit a fly ball to right field. As the ball hooked toward the stands, Ichiro gave chase and reached into the first few row of seats trying to snag the ball.
He didn’t make the catch, and his extended arm collided with 17-year-old Aris Skinner, who was standing up and holding her cell phone.
