Ichiro Suzuki Begins Spring Training

Ichiro Suzuki Begins Spring Training

Via The Washington Post January 15, 2013

Not wasting any time, Ichiro Suzuki has started this new year off with early spring training in Kobe, Japan. Last year he was traded to the New York Yankees and batted .322 with five homers, 27 RBIs and 14 steals. Prior to being traded he was batting .261 with the Seattle Mariners. This jump in performance helped earn him a new $13 million, two-year contract with the Yankees.
“Signing with the Yankees has given me a new sense of determination,” the 39-year-old outfielder said Tuesday after a workout in Kobe. “This is a unique team, a team that can have a player like Alex Rodriguez as a pinch hitter is special and to be part of that is exciting.”
This season could be another All-Star performance for the 10-time Golden Glove outfielder.
