Nobuyuki Suzuki, the father of Seattle Mariners Ichiro Suzuki who became the first Major League Baseball player with 10 consecutive 200-hit seasons, speaks to reporters with his calligraphy of an idiom by third century BC Chinese Confucian philosopher Xun Zi in Toyoyama in Aichi Prefecture, central Japan, Friday, Sept. 24, 2010. Nobuyuki said his son's achievements are the result of a lot of hard work while showing the Chinese idiom meaning: "any packhorse that runs slow can run fast and overtake a fine horse if it keeps running with a cart for 10 days."
