Derek Jeter will forever be known for “the flip” to home plate in the 2001 ALDS.
Now, Ichiro Suzuki may forever be remembered for “the dance” at home in the 2012 ALDS.
The play occurred right after Andino’s gem.
With two outs and Camden Yards buzzing, Yankees 2B Robinson Cano crushed a Chen offering off the right field wall.
With Suzuki racing home from third, Orioles’ right fielder Chris Davis fired a perfect relay to Andino. Andino in turn threw a perfect strike to Wieters.
Someone add music from the Three Stooges here.
Though Suzuki should have been out by 10 feet, Suzuki danced around Wieters’ diving tag—not once, but twice—to put the Yankees up 1-0.
