Ichiro transitioning to role of ‘Special Assistant to the Chairman,’ effective immediately

The longtime icon and outfielder was removed from the Mariners 25-man roster on Thursday afternoon and assigned a new job in the organization — Special Assistant to Chairman John Stanton.

...

In his new role, Ichiro will continue to be an active presence with the Major League club, both at home in Seattle and on the road.

Toodle-oo to my favorite player of my adult lifetime.

~1987 when I became a conscious baseball fan: probably Joe Carter (visited my Ohio grandparents every summer, first-ever ballgame was at Cleveland Municipal)

~1991 when the Braves got good: Dave Justice (grew up in Braves Country)

~2003 Ichiro!

current: Kluber or Lindor

This thread on the same topic got posted first, in case anyone wants to be part of that discussion.

All I saw was “Ichiro transitioning” and thought he had spent too much time here

#1,

Call me crazy, but I would have assumed your favourite player was Joey Votto....

#1 - For a second there, I thought Joe Carter visited your grandparents every summer.

When I saw the headline here, the instant image in my mind was of the character of "The Chairman" on the American version of Iron Chef.
