Yesterday, All-Star baseball player Ichiro Suzuki made his official debut in a Yankees uniform after a recent trade from his longtime team the Seattle Mariners. In honor of Suzuki’s prolonged connection with the Pacific Northwest, ardent baseball fan Ben Gibbard released a tribute track in the man’s honor, explaining via Twitter, “Totally okay with this trade. Thanks for your best years, Ichiro. We will always look back on them fondly. #Mariners #Ichiro I wrote this song a few years ago. Today seems like the best day to share it with you. Thank you so much, Ichiro.” Click below to listen to “Ichiro’s Theme” below (via 107.7 The End). As previously reported Gibbard will be releasing his debut solo album Former Lives on Oct. 16 on Barsuk.
