Ichiro Did It!

Aug 22nd | categories: Seattle Sports

4000 hits. Ichiro did that. The bendy, stretching, right fielder slashed away at a knuckling pitch and tapped it into the outfield - something we've seen him do at Safeco a million times... well, more like 2500 times. Even if he wears those terrible pinstripes, it's easy to get over it when you see the support of the team, fans, and the appreciative series of bows.

SO AWESOME that Munenori Kawasaki - Ichiro's teammate here in Seattle last season - now plays for Toronto AND got to see his hero reach a milestone. ALSO in attendance, Amy Franz. She's the season ticket holding woman that put the Ichi-Meter in the first row behind Ichiro and kept track of his hits every season.

What a class act.
