Most successful Asian player in  MLB

Discussion created by zhangxy1985 on Apr 5, 2013

Before I went to USA in 2006, I did not know much about MLB.  In China, NBA is very popular and has a huge number of fans, but MLB not. I started to watch MLB after I lived in New York in 2006. And the reason I liked MLB is asian player Ichiro Suzuki. Ichiro is incredible to have such wonderful performance at the age of 35+. The most unforgettable season for him is 2007-2008.On July 10, 2007, he became the first player to hit an inside-the-park home run in any MLB All-Star Game after an unpredictable hop off the right field wall of AT&T Park in San Francisco. It was the first inside-the-park home run of Ichiro's professional career. Ichiro was a perfect 3-for-3 in the game and was named the Most Valuable Player in the American League's 5–4 victory.I believe more Asian players will perform like  Ichiro in the future.
