Baseball Prospectus is looking for a Public Data Services Director. Read the description here.

The latest example of Ichiro Suzuki's weird and wonderful sense of humor: a survey form he filled out for a newspaper company as a third-year high school student.

No, I couldn't read it either. But Patrick Newman of NPB Tracker could, and he was kind enough to translate it for the rest of the internet. Among the revelations:

  • High school Ichiro had no strengths, which he considered a weakness
  • High school Ichiro enjoyed digging holes
  • High school Ichiro aspired to become a "mountain supervisor" and the manager of a mushroom patch

So, yeah, Ichiro. Always weird, always wonderful.

Thank you for reading
