Callahan’s Sports: Ichiro’s 3000 Hits Collage, Mike McCready And Bill Gates Play Tennis…

In Seattle over the weekend, there was a tennis tournament fundraiser for Africa and Roger Federer and Bill Gates took on John Isner and Pearl Jammer Mike McCready. Both of the non-pros were nailing it. Gates and Federer won the match 6-4.

MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Marlins have paid tribute to Ichiro Suzuki by giving him a collage of photographs showing each of his first 3,000 hits. Suzuki reached the milestone last season and was honored before Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The ceremony included Japanese home run king Sadaharu Oh offering congratulations in a scoreboard video, and Suzuki responded by bowing toward the scoreboard. The 43-year-old Japanese star spent his first 11½ seasons with Seattle before heading to the New York Yankees and Marlins. He is a career .312 hitter. Marlins president David Samson says the collage is more than 8 feet wide and took months to assemble.
