Complete HD video footage of Mariners autograph session in Tokyo today, with Fake Ichiro meeting players

Took a while, but here is the HD video footage of today’s autograph signing session involving Michael Saunders and Munenori Kawasaki at the MLB Cafe in the Ebisu district of Tokyo this morning.
There was a packed house on hand to greet the players, including of course, everybody’s favorite Fake Ichiro.


There comes a point in the video when Kawasaki, who already got the crowd laughing with his English, spots Fake Ichiro inching his way towards the signing table.
Saunders tried a few words in Japanese as well, as you’ll see in the footage.
Enjoy. Time for me to head off to the ballpark to start the workday.
