Mariners fans welcomed Ichiro back to Seattle with a reception that will give you chills

When the Mariners signed Ichiro Suzuki to a free-agent contract in early March, it filled everyone with warm fuzzies. After all, the man accomplished so much after breaking into MLB with Seattle in 2001. 
The sight of him back in the Pacific Northwest for the first time since 2012 (and the first since homering on his own bobblehead night while he was a visiting player with the Marlins) filled fans with nostalgia -- and they let him feel the love before their 2-1 Opening Day win over the Indians on Thursday:

Chills. Straight-up chills.
