Discover the unique bond between legendary baseball star Ichiro Suzuki and his dog, who influenced his career choices and remains a secret he won't reveal.

Ichiro Suzuki is not only a legendary baseball star, but it turns out he’s also a pretty hilarious and unconventional guy when it comes to his furry friends.

So, the next time you see Ichiro Suzuki on the baseball field, just remember that there’s a little furry friend out there who may have played a big role in keeping him there. And as for the name of that dog? Well, Ichiro’s lips are sealed. After all, he doesn’t have the dog’s permission to disclose it.
