A Surprise for Ichiro Girl

The Seattle Mariners celebrate Ichiro Weekend in honor of retired outfielder Ichiro Suzuki. To throw out the first pitch for Friday's game, they selected Mariners fan Iris Skinner, who came to be known as "Ichiro Girl" after a 2010 viral video caught her excited reaction when Ichiro retrieved a ball right in front of her. Skinner was in for a surprise in her moment of glory, and her adorable enthusiasm which will put a smile on your face for sure. (via Fark)

She had a pen so I guess she was expecting an autograph, just not his.
