Ichiro: The Making of an American Hero
Roland Lazenby (au). In 2001 Ichiro Suzuki, the first Japanese-born position player to play in the major leagues, was voted the American League MVP & Rookie of the Year, becoming just the second player in history to win both awards in the same season. The Seattle Mariners had outbid all other major league teams for the exclusive rights to the perennial Japanese Pacific League batting champ, & then spent millions more to sign him. Then Ichiro also added a Gold Glove that year to complete the trifecta. This book, illustrated with color photos, traces the career of this remarkable athlete from his rise to stardom in Japan, to today’s headlines. It analyzes his impact on Japanese life & culture & shows how he has made the smooth transition to become an authentic hero on two continents.
