Ichiro Suzuki has a pretty devoted following, especially back in his native Japan, but two fans at last night's Yankees-Angels game took it to a new level of surreality by dressing up in full Ichiro uniforms (one Mariners, one Yankees), and then shadowing his movements when he took the field.

This is an absolutely fantastic idea, and MLB should be encouraging more fans to do it. What do they do when he is at bat? Do they eat sunflower seeds whenever he is on the bench? If I were in the stands and saw someone engaged in full MLB cosplay, it would be impossible for me to peel my eyes off of them.
