Ichiro and the Iron Horse

From East Windup Chronicle comes footage of Ichiro as a highschooler. And showing some power!!!

He probably would have won the homerun derby this year. Remember, those were hit in a major league, albeit somewhat smaller, stadium. Anyone remember the story about Lou Gehrig hitting one out of Wrigley as a highschool player? Kind of the same thing here.

Nothing to add, just interesting.

I've heard rumors before that mlb wanted ichiro to participate in the home run derby. Apparently he's got quite the power stroke even though he never been much of a power hitter in the majors.
