TOKYO (AP) --- Ichiro Suzuki started for the Seattle Mariners on Thursday in
what the Japanese news agency Kyodo is reporting will be his final major league
The 45-year-old Ichiro fouled out his first time up and grounded out in his
next at-bat against Oakland. Each time the crowd chanted "Ichiro, Ichiro" as
camera flashes and iPhone flashes lit up the 45,000 sellout at the Tokyo Dome.
Kyodo didn't cite the source of its report.
