The Yankees left fielder was trying to score from first on a two-out double by Robinson Cano in the first when the throw home clearly beat him. Ichiro swung out wide to avoid catcher Matt Wieters, and then he leaped over the diving catcher’s tag attempt to touch home plate for the run.
It was some incredible base running by Ichiro, and just the sort of boost the Yankees were hoping to receive when they acquired him from the Mariners.
As awesome as that play by Ichiro was, it still has nothing on the best slide ever.Google+
