Ichiro Suzuki has been studying how to avoid tags from Major League's Willie Mays Hayes.
Ichiro scored from first base on a long double by Robinson Cano and had to run all the way around home plate to avoid Matt Wieters' tag.
The cut-off throw from second baseman Robert Andino beat the Yankees' left fielder by a mile, but some quick thinking and swift moves helped Ichiro put the Yankees ahead 1-0. Ichiro has been one of the best contact hitters in MLB history, but he showed off some moves avoiding Wieters that would make an NFL punt returner jealous.

Still, with his game-ending strikeout that followed a seventh inning whiff with the...
First, the Orioles halted the Yankees' momentum. Now, it's public transportation. When the Yankees attempted to travel from Baltimore to New York on Tuesday via train, there were electrical difficulties. As a result, the team disembarked in Aberdeen, Md. and switched over to buses for the rest of the trip. "Well, I think our guys made the best of it and kind of laughed...

Dontrelle Willis has come a long way since being named the 2003 NL Rookie of the Year. After raking in over $40 million in career earnings, it appears the wily lefty is a little strapped for cash. After putting $40,ooo worth of modifications into his baby, it appears Willis is ready to unload his 2007 Dodge Charger. Who cares if its a hideous “Limited Edition Sublime Daytona...
