Ichiro Suzuki plays the game a little differently than practically any player that’s ever put on a uniform. He hits like a women’s softball player, does deep knee bends any chance he gets and bobs around like a petulant child while camped under routine fly balls.
The future Hall of Famer saved his most unique on-field move for the first inning of tonight’s American League Division Series.
Trying to score from first on a Robinson Cano double, Suzuki was dead to rights when the ball beat him by 10-plus feet. So he improvised, doing a complicated grapevine dance and somehow diving in before Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters could apply the tag.
