On the first pitch of his second at bat, Hideki Matsui showed the world that there is still a little Godzilla in his bat, hitting a deep home run to right field.

Here’s the video (via Sun Sports)…

    Welcome to Tampa, Hideki.

    Hope Shields can limit the White Sox run production tonight.

    he gave a half a million USD to tsunami relief? holy crap thats alot of yen. I wasnt aware he did that what a generous guy. Thats more than half our present active roster will make this year combined possibly

    Rumor is that Maddon had a fit because he swung at the first pitch: "Maddon told the translator "we don't do things like that around here" the translator told Matsui: Just smile and tell him to kiss your ass in Japanese"... true story as reported by TB newspapers
