The man simply known by his first name to baseball fans and non-fans alike - Ichiro - capped off three days of an affectionate return to his first ballclub by swatting a home run in what may have been his final plate appearance in SafeCo Field yesterday.
Prior to last night's series opener at SafeCo Field, the Seattle Mariners not only welcomed the visiting Miami Marlins to town for a three-game series, they also welcomed back one of their adopted sons, Ichiro Suzuki.
Former Seattle Mariner Ichiro Suzuki - dubbed by some as the "Sultan of Slap" reached first base safely in his first at-bat in the first inning in today's contest between the Miami Marlins and the San Diego Padres. That base hit ties him with Pete Rose at 4,256 if you combine Ichiro's safeties recorded in both the Japanese (1,278) and North American major leagues.
