Inviting Ichiro to show some highschool gamers the finer factors of hitting was speculated to be a enjoyable outing for everybody concerned. As an alternative the varsity is now needing to interchange a window.
This clip comes from Asahikawa Higashi High School in Hokkaido, who’ve a really promising crew — and one damaged window. Not solely did Ichiro blast this out of the park, he belted it into the stratosphere a full 426 toes over the crew’s protecting web and proper right into a window.
The perfect half is when the digicam cuts again to the 50-year-old realizing what he did and capturing this.
Identical face as after I broke my mother’s vase with a soccer within the seventh grade. Now look, I don’t assume anybody would really counsel that 50-year-old Ichiro may play in MLB proper now, however man is it enjoyable to think about. I imply, dude was batting .255 as not too long ago as 2017 and he was nonetheless a great participant.
As an alternative we’ll simply must get pleasure from watching him as a mentor now. A mentor who breaks issues.
