Tokyo salutes baseball ‘god’ Ichiro Suzuki

(CNN)The cheering began well before the Japanese “god” reached home plate.

It was the top of the third inning in the MLB regular-season opener between the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics at the Tokyo Dome, and Mariners shortstop Tim Beckham reached first base on a single. But the roars from the crowd likely weren’t all for him, as an all-time great was on deck.
The applause rolled on, as fans pulled out their phones to capture images of Ichiro Suzuki making his way to the batter’s box.
