VIDEO: Ichiro meets Michael Jordan ... in 1995

By Mike Axisa | Baseball Writer

There usually isn't anything all that exciting about two of the world's biggest sports celebrities meeting in person, but this isn't one of those times. With an assist from MLB.com's Matt Monagan, here is Ichiro Suzuki meeting Michael Jordan in Chicago way back in 1995:

The video is in Japanese, but let's face it -- you don't need to speak the language to appreciate the starstruck look on the then-22-year-old Ichiro's face. Oh, and that Tom and Jerry turtleneck ... that's the star of the show right there.

Jordan asked Ichiro if he was planning to play in the United States, according to Monagan, and the response was classic Ichiro wit: "Once my arm gets as big as yours, then I'll think about it."
