Ladies and Gentlemen, Godzilla is back!
Well, not to play in a game but Hideki Matsui will be a guest hitting instructor for the Yankees this Spring. The Yankees offered him the position last season but Matsui deferred due to the birth of his child.
Although Matsui won’t come out of retirement, his presence will be huge, especially since he played a fundamental role in the Yankees signing Masahiro Tanaka.
Matsui will stay with the team until Spring Training games begin.
