Ichiro Suzuki Has Good Impression Of Yu Darvish

Seattle Mariners right field Ichiro Suzuki saw something in Yu Darvish in his first Major League Baseball appearance, but more so than it being about his pitching performance, it was the way Darvish handled the outing which didn't turn out to be very successful.

"My impression was good. Not his pitching, but just in general," Ichiro said through an interpreter after going 3-for-4 with a bloop single, a double and a sharply hit single off Darvish. "After he was taken out of the game, you saw the crowd with that standing ovation, but he didn't tip his cap. You could tell that he wasn't very happy [or] satisfied with his pitching. That shows pride. That's a good mentality. That's what I liked about him."

Ichiro and Darvish are two of 15 Japanese-born active players in Major League Baseball.
