From one Seattle legend to another, Ichiro sent out a fantastic congratulatory video to Ken Griffey Jr. after The Kid earned a well-deserved induction into the Mariners Hall of Fame.

The two played together briefly in 2009, during Griff’s second stint in Seattle. Unfortunately, Ichiro could not make the ceremony itself, but this video is a very thoughtful substitute. We have to say, the man speaks very little English, but we’re impressed with his effort here – and the backwards hat, of course.
