Ichiro approaching historical benchmark

Ichiro Suzuki is getting quite close to the milestone of 3,000 hits -- in Major League Baseball.  If you also count what he hit in the majors in Japan, he's way over that.

When he gets to 3,001, he'll be 29th on the list, one ahead of Roberto Clemente, who fittingly hit exactly 3,000 before he was killed in a tragic plane crash.

And Ichiro also does the exact same thing every time he gets ready to hit a pitched ball, as is illustrated in this article:

Ichiro: 3 singles, but double steals show
