MLB Sign it Ichiros most recent feat Bullpen catcher

The legendary Ichiro suzuki he has long been a man of many talents. The consummate hitter, the half-time pitcher, the mascot of the mustache disguise, and the current special assistant to the president of the Seattle Mariners; they can add a new skill to the back of their baseball card in the form of a bullpen catcher.

Yes, you read that right. Ichiro, the former 19-year veteran who racked up 3,089 hits throughout his historic career (2001-2019), served as a receiver for the Mariners who rehabbed the left-handed pitcher. Justus sheffield Saturday:

Wearing a stylish blue receiving kit, Ichiro caught Sheffield’s bullpen session as the 25-year-old recovers from a left forearm strain.

This wouldn’t be the first time Ichiro has helped the Mariners’ organization. He has also served as a batting practice pitcher, a role Ichiro takes very seriously, so much so that he built a mound in his backyard in Japan.

It may interest you: Ichiro now serves as a pitcher in Mariners batting practice.

Naturally, of course, the next step in your evolution as a player would be to catch a game as a catcher. Unfortunately, we can only imagine what it’s like to have Ichiro play the role of catcher. Not even manager Scott Servais has seen the wonder Ichiro is behind the plate and that Servais was a catcher.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
