Ichiro Suzuki had a pinch-hit single and stole his first base of the season in Thursday's win over the Braves.
Although it's unclear if anyone is counting, Ichiro came dangerously close to going an entire season with a stolen base for the first time in his MLB career before Thursday's game. With the steal, he's now swiped at least one base in each of his 17 MLB seasons. Ichiro will turn 44 years old this offseason but has a club option for 2018. We won't write him off until everyone else does first. Sep 28 - 11:36 PM

The 43-year-old future Hall of Famer is the oldest active position player in majors. Among all players, only Bartolo Colon (50 days his senior) is older. Said Ichiro of the possibility of playing until 50, "Nobody knows what the future holds. But the way I feel, how I’m thinking, I feel like nothing can stop me from doing it." This past season, Ichiro saw 327 at-bats with the Marlins and hit .291/.354/.376 with 48 runs scored and 10 steals. He will once again serve as the team's fourth outfielder during the coming season.
