Watch: Fan perfectly imitates Ichiro's stance

Ichiro Suzuki is often imitated but never duplicated.

Until now.

During the third inning of Monday's game in San Diego, the Marlins' broadcast spotted a fan in the stands at Petco Park who nearly matched Ichiro's iconic batter's box routine movement for movement.

In typical Ichiro form, the Marlins outfielder punched a single the other way - one of three hits on the night for the 10-time All-Star - inching closer to the 3,000-hit club.

The productive night moved him to within 23 hits of the milestone, and just one hit shy of matching Pete Rose for the most professional baseball hits when including Suzuki's Japan totals.
