WATCH: 50-Year-Old Ichiro Suzuki Is More Dominant Than Ever … Will He Make A Comeback??

Four years after his last appearance in the major leagues, baseball legend Ichiro Suzuki proved he’s still a dominant force on the diamond.

In his annual All-Star game at the Tokyo Dome, Ichiro took to the mound against a team of the top high school girls in Japan and delivered a stellar performance.

He threw a 116-pitch complete game shutout, striking out nine batters along the way while leading his team to a 4-0 victory.

This isn’t the first time Ichiro has dominated on the mound in the All-Star Game, as he previously struck out 17 batters on 147 pitches in 2021.

At the plate, the future Hall of Famer went 2-for-5 with a double … (What happened on the other three at-bats?!?)

Known for his cannon arm in right field during his professional career, Ichiro threw just one inning in the majors, allowing two hits and a run for the Marlins against the Phillies in 2015 … He reached a top speed of 88 mph that day.

During his recent All-Star outing, even eight years later, Ichiro hit 86 mph on the radar gun with his fastball … (Can you believe he’s 50 years old already?!?)

Despite his success, Ichiro didn’t escape the game entirely unscathed. In a late-game at-bat, he found himself down 0-2 in the count and was caught looking at a pitch on the outside corner, resulting in a rare strikeout for the usually contact-heavy hitter.

“I had a bad feeling,” Ichiro remarked with a laugh when asked about the strikeout. “I’m a player who rarely strikes out. I think I should be proud of that. In my opinion, it was harder to hit than (Roger) Clemens.”

Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

Should Ichiro make a comeback???

(Just kidding!)
