SEATTLE – The Seattle Mariners will induct Ichiro Suzuki into the team’s Hall of Fame during the 2022 season, the club announced on Wednesday.
Suzuki will be honored on August 27th when Seattle takes on the Cleveland Guardians.
“Mariners fans have been fortunate to have ichiro Suzuki doing his magic on the plate and on the field in a Mariners uniform for over a decade,” said team chairman John Stanton in a statement.
Suzuki spent parts of 14 seasons with the Mariners before retiring in March 2019 after Seattle opened the season with games in his native Japan. Suzuki was a 10-time All-Star and 10-time Gold Glove winner, won two batting titles, and was 2001 Rookie of the Year and MVP in his debut season with the Mariners.
Suzuki also played for the New York Yankees and Miami.
Suzuki is currently an instructor for the Mariners and works with the Major League and Triple-A teams. He will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2025.
