Miami Tower to feature Marlins colors for 3,000


Recommended Posts

New York, NY – July 29, 2016 – Sumitomo Corporation of Americas (SCOA)announced today that their most recent real estate investment, Miami Tower, will be illuminated in the Miami Marlins’ team colors in honor of Ichiro Suzuki making his 3,000th Major League Baseball hit, which is expected to happen within the next few days. Suzuki will be only the 30th player in MLB history to achieve this milestone.


Designed by renowned architect, I.M. Pei, the iconic Miami Tower is well known for its unique exterior LED lighting system. This elaborate display of lights is typically illuminated during special celebrations, national holidays, anniversary events or other notable occurrences.  The system has the ability to match any exact color or color combinations, and can construct light shows that are static or dynamic.


Suzuki has faced scrutiny in the past over his true number of career hits, having made 1,278 during his time playing in Japan – putting him well over 4,000 when added to his North American hit record.  Though, with his official 3,000th MLB hit approaching, Suzuki will be able to lay that controversy to rest and enter the record books as one of the elite few to reach that impressive number of 3,000.


Sumitomo Corporation of Americas acquired Miami Tower this past May, and is proud to celebrate Suzuki’s accomplishment here in the United States by “lighting up” the Miami skyline in honor of this milestone.
