44-Year-Old Ichiro is Still Out There Robbing Homers!

Baseball Is Fun

Ichiro Suzuki is not just a old-dude-novelty for the Seattle Mariners, who hope to be at least passably competitive this year in the AL West and/or the Wild Card race. Although he’s coming off a down year in 2017, the 44-year-old future Hall of Famer was actually an extremely useful player in 2016. Moreover, he’s been a solid outfielder even as he enters his twilight-twilight years.
