The Seattle Mariners celebrated “Ichiro Weekend” in honor of retired outfielder Ichiro Suzuki, who was inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame Saturday night. To throw out the first pitch for Friday’s game, the team selected Mariners fan Iris Skinner, who came to be known as “Ichiro Girl” in 2010 after the cameras caught her excited reaction to a brush with celebrity when Ichiro retrieved a ball right in front of her. Yeah, you’ll see that clip in this video. Skinner was in for a surprise in her moment of glory when she realized she’d be pitching to Ichiro himself, who donned his Mariners uniform for the occasion. Her adorable enthusiasm will put a smile on your face for sure. -via Fark
