【イチローtoday】Ichiro comes from another planet

MLBのSeattle MariersのWEBサイトより。

Ichiro drives in five runs, Boone adds two homers

Ichiro, who has had two five-hit games this season, went 4-for-4 with a walk to raise his Major League-leading batting average to .367. He is now 33-for-64 in August and looks like a good bet to become the first player in at least 70 years to have three 50-hit months in a season.

He already has two.

本日も4打数4安打5打点のイチロー選手。打率も.367まで上がりました。シーズン3回目の月50本安打へ向けて絶好調です。

また、17日のSeattle Timesより。

Ichiro makes his charge

"Ichiro comes from another planet." "He's the best player in baseball. What can I tell you?" Mora said. "He's smart, he can hit, run, throw, defend, everything. He's the best. How can you compete with this guy?"

ベネズエラ出身の遅咲きの好打者、メルビン・モーラは「イチローは宇宙人である」とコメント。

Perhaps the best comparison for Ichiro is Wee Willie Keeler, who played 100 years ago. His style of play was similar to Ichiro's. Both led off, both played right field, both were left-handed hitters and both used their great speed to build high averages.

また、伝説の左バッターWee Willie Keeler(1892-1910)と比較しています。彼は100年前のプレーヤー。イチローはまさに100年に1人のプレーヤーであると称えます。

Ichiro will have around 900 hits by the end of this season. Even if he averaged 200 for the next 10 years, he would still be short of 3,000 at the age of 40.

年間200本安打を10年続ければ40歳に3000本安打を達成する計算となります。

Keeler finished with 2,932 hits, 86 percent of them singles. He had eight 200-hit seasons, six before 1900. However, by age 35 Keeler began to wear down. He was losing his speed and beating out infield ground balls less frequently. A career .341 hitter, he hit just .234, .263 and .264 in his final three full seasons. He retired 19 games into the 1910 season at age 38.

その鍵は足。Keelerは35歳頃より足が衰え、38歳で引退しました。

7月22日のMAJOR.JPの記事より。

30歳の今季、約50分間の特殊なストレッチ体操を行うため、過去3年間より約1時間早く球場入りするようになった。遠征中でも就寝時間は米西海岸の一定時。起床、食事からプレーボール時間を逆算しての行動は、すべて最高のパフォーマンスに備えてのものだ。

まさに継続は力なり。期待しましょう。
