Maybe the return to his old stomping grounds at Safeco Field has reinvigorated 44 year-old Ichiro Suzuki. It sure looked like that Saturday afternoon when he scaled the left field wall to rob a home run.
Prior to last night's series opener at SafeCo Field, the Seattle Mariners not only welcomed the visiting Miami Marlins to town for a three-game series, they also welcomed back one of their adopted sons, Ichiro Suzuki.
The regular tenants for six months out of the year at Seattle's Safeco Field, Major League Baseball's Mariners, have rarely let the ballpark be used for anything other than, well, baseball. That is going to change later this spring when the diamond is replaced by a rock-and-roll stage.
