WATCH: Derek Jeter gives hilarious reaction to Ichiro after rare home run

  • David Whitlock

To paraphrase “The Most Interesting Man in the World”…

“I don’t often hit home runs…but when I do, they are three-run shots to give us the lead” – Ichiro

Suzuki surprised most of the Yankee Stadium crowd and even his teammates as he turned around a Mark Buehrle breaking ball and put it into the right field seats for a 3-run home run to give the Pinstripes a 6-4 lead.  While that was entertaining, Derek Jeter’s reaction as Ichiro returned to the dugout was even more hilarious. Check it out (credit Kenneth Orton via Yahoo Sports)

 

It was Ichiro’s first home run since August 30, 2013 (and his first as a 40-year-old).  Legend has always had that Ichiro could hit for power…if he wanted to.  But getting 4,000 hits across two major leagues was his choice of pain infliction upon the enemy.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
