End Music Discovery: Ben Gibbard - "Ichiro's Theme"

Jul 23rd | categories: Music

In the wake of todays news that long time Mariners right fielder and team hero, Ichiro had been traded to the New York yankees, mixed reactions from a multitude of sources were to be expected. However perhaps the most positive is that of Ben Gibbard who not only supported the trade, but posted this track he wrote a few years back about the man himself. Here's Ben's words on the matter, check out the track below:

"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."
