Ichiro Suzuki earns his place on your Wall of Fame

March 24, 2009

What was I doing, transfixed to the television at 1:00 am EDT this morning, dead tired while nursing a cold, and having two little children to help take care of in less than six hours? I was watching one of the best baseball games I’ve ever seen! After two weeks of trying to follow a lacklustre group of teams playing an incomprehensible tournament format in front of mostly empty stadiums, the World Baseball Classic concluded with a truly amazing Japan-Korea final. The secret? These were actual TEAMS competing, not assembled groups of spring training refugees who’s GMs didn’t forbid them from taking part. After a 9 innings of amazing defense, intense strategy, clutch hitting, and dominant pitching, it was only fitting that the legendary Ichiro Suzuki would break the tie with a remarkable 8-pitch at-bat that resulted in a two-run single and a 5-3 Japanese victory. With his clutch performance, he definitely earned his spot on my Wall-of-Fame! Click on any of the images below for more info on these great Ichiro additions to your wall:
