Ichiro makes hit to 3,000
(That was fun.) I had posted an Ichiro watch a short while ago, and the Japanese hit machine finally made it to the 3,000 mark, with an uncharacteristic triple. So when he goes in the Hall of Fame, even though his MLB total will be a number a few over 3,000, his professional baseball hit total will be a lot more than Pete Rose.
Inside the numbers: from age 27 on, only Pete Rose had more hits than Ichiro
