What is a split haiku? I just made it up. It’s the familiar 5-7-5 syllable count for haiku, but each of the three lines is split visually into two to form the I-C-H-I-R-O-! acrostic.

Data for both graphs comes from the PITCHf/x Hitter Profile for Ichiro Suzuki (2007-2012) at Baseball Prospectus as reported on 7/27/12.

Ichiro must have read your blog today, because he turned on an inside pitch tonight and blasted it off the face of the second deck in right field.
