Ichiro Suzuki is an aberration.
At 5'9" and 170 pounds, Ichiro’s slender frame belies his incredible talent. He has one of the most feared arms in all of baseball. His bat is lightning quick through the zone. His speed on the base paths is that of a track star. But you wouldn’t know all that just by looking at him.
Naturally quiet, Ichiro keeps a low profile. Besides being one of baseball’s best, the 10-time All-Star seems to shy away from the attention usually sought by superstar athletes.
He doesn’t make outrageous statements or call out his teammates. Instead, Ichiro goes about his business day in and day out and leads his Seattle Mariners team by example.
