Hideki Irabu, a star Japanese baseball player who struggled to achieve comparable success in the United States, was found dead Wednesday in his Rancho Palos Verdes home.

Authorities are investigating his death “as an apparent suicide and hanging,” said Lt. Fred Corral of the Los Angeles County Coroner’s investigations division.

Irabu, 42, was best known in the United States for his stint with the New York Yankees, where he was an inconsistent but key contributor on two championship teams in 1998 and 1999.

His best season was 1998, his second in the American League, when he compiled 13 wins and nine losses for the Yankees and an earned run average of 4.06.

In 173 innings he gave up 148 hits, while striking out 126 batters. The team, managed by future Dodgers Manager Joe Torre, won a then-league record 114 games.

Irabu also posted a winning record, 11-7, on the championship team of the following year. His higher earned run average of 4.84, however, denoted his inconsistency.Irabu came to American baseball via the San Diego Padres, who obtained the rights to his services from a team in the Japan Pacific League. Irabu refused to play for the Padres, forcing a trade to New York.Three years later, he’d worn out his welcome. At one point, Yankees owner George Steinbrenner belittled Irabu for his girth and perceived lack of hustle, calling him a “fat toad.”The right-hander was listed as 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds.Because his early career was in Japan, Irabu reached the major leagues at the relatively advanced age of 28, but his career also ended early for a player signed to a big contract as a star-quality contributor.After three years with the Yankees, he played for the Montreal Expos in the National League and the Texas Rangers in the American League. He was 33 in his final season in 2002. His career record was 34-35.He was arrested last year in Gardena for alleged drunk driving.

5 + 15 +1+9+6+9 = 45 = his life lesson = what he was here to learn = Things go horribly wrong.  Ouch.  That’s gotta hurt.

—————————————————————————————

May 15th, 1969

May 15th

5 + 15 +2+0+1+1 = 24 = his personal year (from May 15th, 2011 to May 14th, 2012) = Taking charge.

24 year + 7 (July) = 31 = his personal month (from July 15th, 2011 to August 14th, 2011) = Struggling.

31 month + 28 (28th of the month on Thursday July 28th, 2011) = Fall from grace.  Everything falls apart.  Funeral.  Toxicology.

Where:

A = 1              J = 1              S = 1

B = 2              K = 2             T = 2

C = 3              L = 3             U = 3

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 36 to 45 are ruled by the sum of the 5th letter of  the name and the day of birth.

Hideki Irabu      May 15th, 1969

11 (k is the 11th letter of the alphabet) + 15 (born on the 15th of the month) = 26

So the number 26 ruled his ages thirty-six to forty-five.

26 = In the news.
