Felix's son may be following in Ichiro's footsteps

Felix Hernandez's son, Jeremy, may look to follow in his father's footsteps as a big leaguer. But it's that guy out in right field the youngster really wants to emulate.

As about 11,500 Little Leaguers and their families paraded around Safeco Field on Sunday, Hernandez warmed up his Cy Young-winning arm by tossing batting practice to Jeremy in the outfield.

Jeremy mimicked Ichiro's popular batting routine, albeit from the right side. Meanwhile, Jason Vargas' son approached his BP session like Bamm-Bamm Rubble, repeatedly slamming his bat into the ground between pitches.
