Hideki was a great hitter during his first 4 or 5 seasons with the yankees. No, the Godzilla power from Japan didn't translate,, but pound for pound, the guy could rake.

Good player and good personality. Also a class act.

Hideki Matsui was a great player and a great Yankee. I love when my team gets players like him and Nick Swisher to add class to our team's personality. Just please steer clear of the Gary Sheffields of the world.

There was nothing more fun than being at a Yankee game, him hitting a home run and all my friends and me screaming "GODZILLA!!!!!"

Hilarious! Slightly racist, but too funny.

one of the greatest yankees i have ever seen. He was a class act, extremely clutch, and helped the Yankees win the 2009 world series. Always one of my favorites
