Ichiro clips on YouTube

That’s an 8′ fence. He plants about halfway up, jumps/pulls himself about halfway over the fence and makes the catch at eye level. So that ball was going to clear the fence by 3-4′ at a height of about 11-12′ and Ichiro caught it. It’s hard to realize because he kind of does half and half, but Ichiro managed to catch a ball that required a jump essentially as high as he stands.

Ichiro commercial for MLB. “As an athlete, I’m drawn to the allure of trying to play this game as close to perfection as humanly possible.” (I would bet that lost something in the translation – draw to the allure?)
