Ichiro Suzuki Dances Around Home Plate to Avoid Matt Wieters’ Tag (Video)

Ichiro Suzuki
has been studying how to avoid tags from Major League's Willie Mays Hayes.

Ichiro scored from first base on a long double by Robinson Cano Monday night and had to run all the way around home plate to avoid catcher Matt Wieters' tag.

The cut-off throw from second baseman Robert Andino beat the Yankees' left fielder by a mile, but some quick thinking and swift moves helped Ichiro put the Yankees ahead 1-0. Ichiro has been one of the best contact hitters in MLB history, but he showed off some moves avoiding Wieters that would make an NFL punt returner jealous.

Watch Ichiro play "you can't touch me" with Wieters' glove in the video below.
