For at least the past five years Ichiro Suzuki has been the victim of repeated attempts to steal his identity. After an Extra Mustard Investigation™, we can confirm that there may be as many as four suspects.

Because the suspects have cleverly disguised themselves as Ichiro Suzuki, however, it’s nearly impossible to tell how many men are involved in the scheme. 

The latest incident occurred on Monday night in San Diego, where a man was caught on camera impersonating the 42-year-old Japanese outfielder.


​This comes after at least three previous incidents involving Ichiro imitators.
