If forty-four-year-old Ichiro Suzuki decides to return to the NPB this year, at least two teams will be interested: the Orix Buffaloes and Chunichi Dragons. And according to Sports Hochi, the Dragons may have already submitted an offer to the outfielder.
For those wondering, Ichiro has connections to both Orix and Chunichi. The veteran was born in Aichi and was a fan of the Dragons as a child. When he turned pro, he played for the Orix Blue Wave.0 Comments
