Fake Ichiro makes appearance at Mariners signing in Tokyo

Many of you who tuned in live already saw this, but for those who did not, the fake version of Ichiro showed up to the autograph signing session today by Michael Saunders and Munenori Kawasaki. This is the Ichiro who interfered with a ball in-play last year at Safeco Field. The Japan based impersonator also has been known to sign autographs as the real Ichiro.


Anyhow, the event was a pretty popular one for the fans who were there. Many waited patiently in line for over half an hour to get their autographs. We’ll have more footage for you as soon as it’s loaded, so hopefully, you find this footage somewhat entertaining.
Remember, it was shot live, so it’s not HD. But then again, when stuff is live, you never know what’s going to happen, right? Enjoy.
