Everyone recognized former New York Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter. Except sumo wrestlers.
The soon to be Hall of Famer attended a sumo event in Japan with girlfriend Hannah Davis. Apparently one sumo wrestler did not recognize him.
A sumo wrestler named Chiyomaru met Mr. Jeter during the match and apparently didn’t know much about him. Chiyomaru actually thought that he played the catcher’s position during Jeter’s 20 year career. Chiyomaru stated: I didn’t realize who it was, You have to tell me earlier.”
Jeter is in Japan promoting his upcoming charity baseball game, which will feature his former teammate Hideki Matsui. The game will benefit survivors of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
Nice to go unrecognized once in a while.
