Ichiro Suzuki Retires From Professional Baseball

"But the ballpark is changing from Safeco to T-Mobile Park, so I think this is the right place to finish up my career here".

Ichiro went on to collect 4,367 career hits in both Japan and North America, the most in professional baseball history.

But, here I am, getting started on it anyway knowing that I may have to finish it in the vehicle on the way to my party, which, if a bachelor party is about doing what makes me the happiest, feels perfectly fitting.

At 45, Ichiro became the second-oldest position player to start an opener, only a few months younger than Julio Franco was for Atlanta in 2004.

Ichiro went 0 for 4.

Google is launching a game-streaming service, Stadia
If, for instance, you're watching a trailer for a game , you can click "play now" and start playing within a matter of seconds. If you're concerned that multi-stream games might not be playing on their highest setting on Stadia , you'd be incorrect.

But Ichiro's influence ranged far, far beyond his ability to poke the ball anywhere to get a hit. In 18+ years with the Mariners, Yankees and Marlins, Ichiro has a.311/.355/.402 slash line with 509 stolen bases and 117 home runs in over 2,600 games played.

Mariners manager Scott Servais confirmed that Ichiro will play again in that final game of the series. "I thought we'd give him the opportunity to go out there".

Kikuchi became the first Japanese-born player to make his major league debut in Japan.

One of the most incredible stats that bookends Ichiro's career.

Growing up in OR, I rooted for the Detroit Tigers simply because my Dad was from there.

Ichiro joined the Mariners just after the team had lost three of its four superstars (Randy Johnson, Ken Griffey Jr., and finally Alex Rodriguez; Edgar Martinez finished his career with the team). But with fans eager to see him deliver, he popped up with a runner on second base. That career came to an end Thursday. Each time the crowd chanted "Ichiro, Ichiro" as camera flashes and iPhone flashes lit up the 45,000 sellout at the Tokyo Dome. The Mariners were particularly appropriate for Ichiro, as they had extensive ownership connections with Japan.

Growing up, Kikuchi did the same thing as all Japanese baseball fans: adore Ichiro.

In addition to the Mariners, Ichiro, a 10-time All-Star, played for the New York Yankees and Miami Marlins in his Major League Baseball career. His 3,089 hits in Major League Baseball, combined with another 1,2278 in Japan, totals a record 4,337 hits.

The memories of Ichiro are almost impossible to summarize.

In a fitting scene - a passing of the torch, possibly - Ichiro caught a flyball to end the fourth inning and Kikuchi waited for him outside the dugout for a fist bump. The future Hall of Famer was taken out of his final game in the bottom of the eighth inning of an eventual 12-inning Mariner victory to an enormous ovation and curtain call.
