The New York Yankees re-signed outfielder Ichiro Suzuki, a 10-time All-Star and 10-time Gold Glove winner for his defensive prowess, to a two-year contract.
The New York Yankees acquired outfielder Ichiro Suzuki in a trade with the Seattle Mariners.
Ichiro Suzuki bowed as his New York Yankees teammates crowded first base to celebrate his 4,000th career hit that put him in the company of Pete Rose and Ty Cobb.
"I believe the Yankees organization appreciates that there is a difference between a 39-year-old who has played relying only on talent, and a 39-year-old who has prepared, practiced and thought thoroughly through many experiences for their craft."
