Ichiro on Ichiro: Interviews with Narumi Komatsu Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ichiro Suzuki, one of the New York Yankees' newest outfielders and hottest batters, talks about all things baseball in this candid book that reveals the inner mind of one of baseball's finest practitioners. Since Ichiro Suzuki joined the Seattle Mariners in 2001, he awed America, earned the respect of his teammates, and won the heart of baseball fans everywhere. But being notoriously private and media-elusive, fans know very little about him. Ichiro proves to be a thoughtful and gifted student of the game. He articulates how, as one of the smaller players in the MLB, it takes something more than power and strength to become a fully realized player and effective team member. Being a baseball superstar on two continents, he reflects on the insane media coverage he endures, as well as his own awe for the game’s great players. In this frank conversation, the leading Major League batter breaks down the art and science of the swing.

Synopsis:

In a rare and remarkable conversation, Japanese baseball star Ichiro Suzuki talks about his life, his love of baseball, and living in America. Photos in color and b&w.

Synopsis:

Since Ichiro Suzuki joined the Mariners in 2001, he has awed America, earned the respect of his teammates, and won the heart of Seattle. But being notoriously private and media-elusive: baseball fans know very little about him. Ichiro on Ichiro gives readers a rare glimpse into the mind and soul of this amazing player. He recalls memories of his childhood and his relationship with his father in Japan; his baseball career and celebrity status in his home country; his feelings on arriving in America for spring training; adapting to American culture and receiving awards and adulation. Reclusive Ichiro trusted no other writer than Narumi Komatsu to conduct this Q & A interview. Readers are fortunate to be brought into this exceptional conversation and to share in Ichiro's closely held feelings on the sport, the Mariners, his wife, and the media.
