Ichiro singles as impersonator performs spot-on impression of his routine
Ichiro Suzuki is one of the most recognizable names in baseball, and has been for more than a decade. The reason for that is simple: He’s among the best hitters to ever step to the plate. In the third inning of Monday night’s game, he recorded his 2,975th career hit, moving to within 25 of 3,000 — a mark only 29 players have ever reached.
He did so with an impersonator in the crowd doing a spot-on impression of his iconic routine at the dish.
Seriously, it doesn’t get much better than that. He even pulled off the smaller details, like removing his elbow pad upon reaching first base.
Ichiro would later rack up two more hits, making him just 23 hits shy of 3,000.
