Last year we brought you the news that Yankees slugger Hideki Matsui had secredly wed a 25-year-old office worker from Japan. However, at the time, Matsui refused to divulge her name, and no pictures of her were available, other than Matsui’s rather amateurish hand-drawn depiction of his beloved.

However, in the year and a half since that time, Japanese fans have been diligently at work, scouring video clips for any evidence that Matsui’s purported wife actually exists.

So far, they have come up with two photographs, which Japanese websites agree are almost certainly of Matsui’s wife. Have a look and see what you think…

  3. yes, accurate drawing. looks like her. i don’t blame him keeping her secret. people are cruel.

  4. Matsui is a great solid player, reliable and great work ethic. No wonder he’s a big star. If he had better English, he could be getting more commercial endorsements. At least he’s getting appearing in some TV commercials in Japan
