Ichiro Suzuki news and notes from July 26:

===

Daily Sports has posted an interview a TV station in Seattle had with Ichiro after Wednesday's game.

The three games series against Seattle is now over...

I am very sad.  The way the fans supported me and how they watch me off.  I am very lucky.

You played immediately after the trade.  What did it feel like?

I found it very difficult.  But for me, this was the only change I had to play here.  I went out there and played hard, with the last eleven-and-a-half years locked away in my heart.

How did it feel talking to the players you once called your teammates?

It was a strange.  For me to come on the field wearing a grey uniform, talking to my former teammates, it felt very weird.  It is difficult to explain.

Anything for the fans?

All I have a feelings of appreciation.  The time I played here, I have all kinds of memories.  I would like to move forward while taking pride in the last eleven-and-a-half years.  Thank you very much.
