Ichiro Suzuki Newsbeat

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

The season never ends of Marlins’ Ichiro Suzuki

On the night the season ended — a Sunday — Suzuki said he returned to his Miami Beach residence and began working out on the custom-made equipment he has set up in his home.

He returned to the ballpark on Wednesday and has continued showing up there six days a week. It would be seven if not for the fact the ballpark is closed on Sundays, with no one to let him in.

“There’s never a day where I just sit at the house and just relax and do nothing,” he said. “There’s not a day like that. It’s not like I have to do this. For me, I want to do it. It’s fun. Maybe for the other players, it’s not like that. I’m not sure. But for me, it’s fun and I want to come out and that’s why I do it.”

He will head back to Japan at the end of the month and spend the rest of the offseason there.

“But the schedule is the same in Japan,” he said of his daily workout routine.

He is determined to keep playing.

“I kind of want to be able to lead the way and show that age is not a factor, and that you can continue to do what you want to do,” Suzuki said. “So if there’s a player in the future that’s going to want to play up to this point, or to a certain age, then they’ll have somebody who has done it before.”
