Mariners' Kikuchi excited for MLB debut in home country

TOKYO -- What will possibly be one Japanese legend's final major-league appearance comes on the same day that another potential star from the baseball-crazed island nation makes his debut.

That's Yusei Kikuchi, who will make his first start for the Seattle Mariners on Thursday, facing the Oakland Athletics in the second game of the 2019 Opening Series at the Tokyo Dome in Japan.

"I never dreamt of starting my career in Japan," Kikuchi, 27, said through an interpreter. "This will be the experience of a lifetime for me. I'd like to enjoy it fully."
