Baltimore, Maryland - June 25, 2018: Seattle Mariners star Ichiro Suzuki jokes with his longtime interpreter Allen Turner during batting practice before the Mariners play the Orioles at Camden Yards in Baltimore Monday June 25, 2018.
Seattle Mariners star Ichiro Suzuki goes through all the pre-game warm ups like any position player on the Seattle Mariners, before their game against the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yard Monday June 25th -- except his current position is "Special Assistant to the Chairman," in the ball club's front office.
He does everything an active player does except play. His new position in management forbids him from being in the dugout during game play, so he soaks up as much time with the players before the first pitch.
