Legend Ichiro Suzuki Retires

 On March 21st, Ichiro Suzuki, Seattle Mariner’s baseball player, announced his retirement at a press conference after a night game at Tokyo Dome. The Japanese major leaguer’s retirement was news not only in Japan and the U.S. but also in Europe.                                                                                 The British media hardly ever deals with baseball. Nevertheless, the BBC reported on the top page of its official site that Japanese baseball legend Ichiro Suzuki retired and that he was “proud” after almost three decades in the sports. German and Italian media also reported his retirement.                                                                                  He is actually a living legend. In 2004, he broke George Sisler’s record of 257 hits in a season after 84 years. In 2009, he got 200 hits or more for 9 consecutive years, breaking Willer Keeler’s record got 108 years previously. He helped bring championship titles in the first and second World Baseball Classics.                                                                                  What I appreciate most about him is his character. His work ethic and sense of fair play impressed Americans. Owing to his popularity, Japanese foods such as edamame became very popular in the U.S.  I’m happy to see that several Japanese players are now doing well in the major leagues.
