At 43 years old, it’s entirely possible that the Japanese outfielder will retire at the conclusion of the 2017 MLB season.
If that’s indeed the case, this is Ichiro’s last trip to Seattle as an active player, which must be emotional considering the countless memories he made in the Emerald City.
Knowing this, the Mariners decided to make it ‘Ichiro Bobblehead Night’ to honor their former superstar.

In the ninth-inning, Ichiro shocked the masses by hitting a rare home run, which could easily be the last one hits in MLB. It’s most definitely the last dinger he will ever clobber at Safeco Field.
