Ichiro, Mariners at Yankees, May 25, 2008 
Photos taken at the first game of my seventeen-stadium road trip (fourteen major league parks, two minor league parks, one summer collegiate league park). Those were two of the most enjoyable months of my life.

Photos taken at the first game of my seventeen-stadium road trip (fourteen major league parks, two minor league parks, one summer collegiate league park). Those were two of the most enjoyable months of my life.

And there’s another one of Ichiro’s commercials for Sato here.

In August last year, I made this animated GIF and called it “One day, someone else will play right field.” I guess that day is today.

Some animated GIFs of Ichiro in right field made from photographs taken the last time I was at Safeco Field in 2009.
