Ichiro Suzuki returns to the field for fans after the game. His final at bat could hardly have been more typical - a ground ball out that he very nearly legged into an infield single with a full-bore sprint to first. The Mariners won 5-4 after three extra innings.

Ichiro Suzuki stands in the batter's box during the second inning. "I do not know well whether it is success, I can not judge that at all. So I hate the word success," Ichiro told reporters. "I think that it takes great courage to go and try challenge in the MLB," he continued, directing his message to young aspiring Japanese players. "If you want to do it, you should challenge. There will be no regrets no matter what the outcome. Basically, you should go for what you want to do."

Ichiro Suzuki jogs to the dugout after the fourth inning. Ichiro hit the ground running immediately in the MLB, winning the American League MVP in his first year. At a time of usually powerful and beefy sluggers, he was the opposite - wiry, skinny and perpetually in motion, always seeming to be two steps towards first base at the moment the ball left his bat.
