Mariners Chairman: Yamauchi Saved Baseball in Seattle

Afore the start of the series game with the Kansas City Royals on Monday night, the Seattle Mariners held a moment of silence for former owner Hiroshi Yamauchi, Nintendo’s former President as well as the man who bought a majority stake in the team back in 1992, averting the previously inevitable move to Florida. But first, a statement was made about the Yamauchi made on baseball in both Seattle and the US as a whole, as he was also credited for influencing the arrival Japanese players to the states. In 2001, Ichiro Suzuki was among the first of Japanese ball players to be signed onto the Mariners as well as the first to ever play Major League Baseball.
