JapanBaseball superstar “Lang Shen”Suzuki IchirouEarlier this month, he went to Asahikawa Higashi High School in Hokkaido to train the players. When he demonstrated hitting in person, he hit a huge home run and broke the window of a math classroom on the third floor of the school. The school did not later apply for compensation from Ichiro, but exhumed the entire broken window glass and kept it as a permanent display souvenir.
Ichiro Suzuki, 50 years oldretireSince then, his love for baseball has not diminished. He has recently visited high schools in various locations to provide guest training, and even gave batting demonstrations in person. After footage of his consecutive hits was released, baseball fans in Japan and around the world cheered.
When Suzuki Ichiro broke the glass he was so scared that he shrank his neck and said “Oh no!” Showed expression. However, the school at Asahikawa Higashi High School reported that the window was “double-glazed” and only the outer aluminum sliding window was damaged. The interior windows were intact and teachers and students who were in the classroom at the time were not affected.
Later, the school asked a manufacturer to assist, carefully removing the window and then installing an aluminum frame to create a memorial display. The school will bear all the processing costs. Toshiyuki Sato, vice captain of the school’s baseball team, said happily, “This (souvenir) is an encouragement to the members of the baseball team. I hope other students will also be inspired after seeing it.”
