The U-51 unlimited hydroplane makes it debut in Seattle

SEATTLE, Wash. - Now there's a combination we could only dream about.  Seattle Mariner's outfielder Suzuki Ichiro and hydroplane racing. 

20,000 lucky fans took home a 4-inch die-cast metal Ichiro hydroplane courtesy of Oh Boy! Oberto at the July 27th game against Oakland.  They're already showing up on ebay with the going price between $7-$15.

It was the second time the Mariners have given away toy hydroplanes.  The first time, it led to one of my favorite all-time hydro videos (above).
