Fortunately, this Ichiro fan won't go down in history with the likes of Steve Bartman, but a Mariners fan did get a bit overzealous in grabbing a souvenir baseball Tuesday night. Dustin Ackley hit the ball down the right field line and was clearly headed for a triple, when a fan dressed in what appears to be a full Ichiro Suzuki uniform reached onto the field and picked up the ball. So Ackley was given a ground-rule double as the fan put his head down in shame. Eventually the umpires awarded Ackley third base, so it didn't end up hurting them at all.

The best part of the video -- as you can see below -- is probably the announcer's indignant "dude" call. Either that or the fan sitting next to the fake-Ichiro pointing to the field and scolding him. The Ichiro fan was ejected from the game, which seems to be a bit much.

Check it out below.

I understand that they merely took him out for a moment and let him return to his seat after a talking to.

You can see he didnt even do it for himself. He handed to ball to a little boy sitting 2 seats down. That sucks getting tossed. You can see it was an accident.

The Mariners need to get Ichiro to sign a ball for this guy.  He is obviously a huge fan who is financially supporting that sorry team.  Wonder how much he dropped on all the gear, not to mention his first row seat.  Seattle cannot afford to drive off fans from such an anemic team with a pathetic history.  Given the offense, including his hero this year, maybe the M's should put a bat in this guy's hands.  After all, if he looks that much like Ichiro, what if he hits like the old Ichiro too?

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and guess he didn't notice that the 1B had touched that ball.
