VIDEO: Ichiro's New Wide(r) Stance

Tip of the cap to Geoff Baker for capturing the video of Ichiro's new wide stance. In preparation for his move to the three-hole in the batting order, the Mariner's former leadoff hitter has widened his stance a bit. Time will tell if the adjustment will help Ichiro make contact a little more often and hit with a little more power, as his role changes significantly at the plate. Check out the video after the jump - his stance doesn't look significantly different, but you can notice a subtle change for sure...
