Baseball heroes have a way of connecting people. There were many nights that I spent with my son watching the game through his eyes. He understood it better than I ever will but I tried to keep up with the intricacies. I just never knew there could be so many stats. When he spent a year in Japan, I thought he would miss the companionship of sharing the game with others. I was wrong. The first thing the children cried out to him was Ichiro! I realized long after I am gone, there will always be someone to share his passion for the baseball greats, as long as there are players like Ichiro.
