The baseball gentleman will return to Yankee Stadium on Tuesday. Hideki Matsui will stroll into his old home with the Angels, his new team. There will be a flock of reporters chronicling every handshake and high-five that Matsui shares, but he will remain as stoic as always. He rarely looks flustered, mostly because he rarely is.

Matsui loved playing and living in New York, adored his teammates and felt comfortable in a place he had been for seven seasons. Because Matsui was instrumental in helping the Yankees win a title last year so, he would have relished being part of a club that is trying to win back-to-back championships.
