Some people just can’t handle Sunday night baseball.
The series finale between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees was a highly entertaining affair, complete with a controversial replay decision, a spectacular catch by Ichiro Suzuki and even a few bizarre, never-before-seen infield combinations.
One Yanks fan missed it all, though, instead choosing to get some shut-eye...
Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki made a leaping catch at the wall Sunday night, robbing David Ortiz of extra bases.Even Ortiz had to smile at the phenomenal eighth-inning catch-and-roll that stopped him from getting on base during a tight game. The Yanks held on to win 3-2.Your browser does not support iframes.
Ichiro Suzuki has been playing a long time. The 40-year old outfielder has done a lot on the field and established himself as one of the best hitters that the game has ever seen (4000 career hits will do that for you). However, to play as long as he has and to have the opportunity to make all those hits he had to be pretty useful in the field too.Sunday night against the Boston Red...
The future Hall of Fame outfielder says sees it and feels it. He sees it when he's in a pre-game hitting group with backups. He feels it when he's walking to the trainers' room after the first inning.
But Ichiro Suzuki said he doesn't know how to explain the uncertainty covering him like Yankees pinstripes.
For the second time in his 13-year major league career...
It only seemed fitting that when Derek Jeter retired, so too would Ichiro Suzuki . . . albeit it a little more quietly. Except that Ichiro has no plans of retirement, saying recently that,
“Retirement from baseball is something I haven’t even thought about.”
And Ichiro didn’t stop there. He’s not talking about one final year, saying that he intends to play...
Amy Franz has been tallying Ichiro's hits on her "Ichi-Meter" since his record-setting 262-hit season in 2004. Even though the outfielder has moved from Franz's native Seattle to New York, she was still there to commemorate his 4,000th hit (between Japan and MLB) in August.On Thursday, she tweeted this heartfelt gesture of appreciation from Ichiro himself (plus...
New York Yankees Ichiro Suzuki gave fans yet another reason to believe it’s going to that kind of year.
Although he walked away with not even a scratch, Suzuki totaled his Range Rover near George M. Steinbrenner Field on Saturday in Tampa, Florida.

The New York Yankees signed 39-year old outfielder Ichiro Suzuki to a two-year deal somewhere between the $12-$13 million range.
Ichiro was great for the Yankees last year, as he was traded over mid-season from the Mariners and was the only semi-productive player during the 2012 postseason.
Many fans, including myself...
RIME OF THE FORMER MARINER
Amy Franz, the Mariners fan behind the "Ichimeter," a hit-counter that tracked Ichiro's hits at Mariners home games, received a thank you note and care package from Ichiro.
The 38-year old Ichiro Suzuki is still one slick dude.
With Ichiro standing at second base, Robinson Cano hit a ball down the right field line. Suzuki was sent home on the play and somehow tiptoed around two tags by Matt Weiters tag and slid safely into home.
The dance move by Ichiro gave the Yankees and early 1-0 lead. What an athletic play.
