On This Date: The Legend Of Ichiro Is Born [VIDEO]
Amazingly, it has been 17 years ago, on this very date, that the baseball world was formally introduced to Ichiro Suzuki.
In a game at Alameda County Stadium, with one single laser-like throw to gun down Terrence Long then of the Oakland A's, the Japanese legend quickly became a household name in the U.S.
