No Gatorade shower for Ichiro's walk-off score because of valuable glove (VIDEO)

Ichiro Suzuki scored the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth on a walk-off wild pitch from Brandon Workman to salvage a much-needed 4-3 win against the Red Sox Sunday.

Breaking tradition, Yankees teammate Brett Gardner didn't douse Ichiro with Gatorade after the important victory during a postgame interview because Ichiro was holding his beloved glove. Gardner knows how much importance Ichiro places on his equipment and didn't want to ruin the outfielder's leather accessory.

True story.
