Ichiro Draws a Line in the Dirt

ichiro1For the first time in his entire professional baseball career, Ichiro Suzuzi was thrown out of a game on Saturday. The Baseball Samurai used his bat to draw a line by the outside edge of the plate, showing home plate umpire Brian Runge that the pitch he called for strike 3 was actually outside. Runge immediately rang him up and tossed Ichiro who then argued (probably using his extensive vocabulary of expletives) before being escorted off the field by manager Don Wakamatsu. Ichiro ended the day going a rare 0-3 but managed to still make history by being the first Mariner to get thrown out of a game all season, so, there’s that!
