Ichiro Transitions to Front Office Role with Mariners

In the interest of full disclosure, I just purchased tickets for Sunday's game, hoping to see Ichiro get one last at-bat, so I am among the many disappointed fans.

Technically, Ichiro was released by the Mariners on Thursday.

Suzuki hit.205 in 44 at-bats and all nine of his hits this season were singles.

He not only became the first player to attain his 3,000 hit in a Marlins uniform, his pursuit of the milestone in 2016 was one of the compelling and uplifting stories around the team during a long drought of losing seasons. "We really don't want him to change anything that he's doing right now, with the exception that he will not be playing in games". "I knew one day that the day would come when I would have to walk away".

"He in no way has chose to retire", Boggs said, according to the report.

"While this agreement only covers the 2018 season, it is our goal that Ichiro be a member of the Seattle organization long-term", Dipoto said. "Seattle is where he wants to be and where he's most comfortable".

"At this point he does not intend to retire".

Donovan Mitchell unleashes absolutely vicious slam vs. Houston Rockets
Utah shot splendidly throughout and finished 15 for 32 from behind the arc while posting a 51.2 percentage from the floor overall. With the loss, Houston gives away homecourt advantage to Utah, as games three and four take place at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

Juror says Bill Cosby's own words led to his conviction
His publicist called the conviction a "public lynching". "So, if they send me to that place, then that's what they will do and I will have to go there", Cosby told the Post.

But this new role won't allow him to return to Seattle's active roster in 2018.

The final at-bat for Ichiro in the big leagues will be a swinging strikeout in the bottom of the ninth inning of a 3-2 loss to the Oakland Athletics on May 2.

Suzuki was almost the hero Wednesday, barely missing a hit in the ninth inning of Seattle's 3-2 loss that sliced a few feet foul with the tying run at second base. While there are no guarantees of Suzuki returning, Seattle and Oakland do open the 2019 regular season with a two-game series in Tokyo.

While Suzuki struggled at the plate, he did have a few defensive gems, including robbing Cleveland's Jose Ramirez of a homer on the opening weekend of the season and reminding everyone of his greatness as an all-around player. Dee Gordon has made the move to center field.

The 2001 AL Most Valuable Player and Rookie of the Year was as influential as any position player in the game's vast history.

Even more impressive, when added to his hit total with Japan's Onix Blue Wave, Ichiro had 4,367 hits as a professional - more than Pete Rose's Major League record of 4,256.

The 44-year-old future Hall of Famer announced earlier Thursday that he won't play another game this season while transitioning to his new role with the Mariners as special assistant to the chairman.
