2013: New York Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki collects the 4,000th hit of his professional baseball career with a single against the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium. He became only the third player in professional baseball history to reach the 4,000-hit plateau, joining Pete Rose and Baseball Hall of Famer Ty Cobb. The total included 2,722 MLB hits and 1,278 hits from his lengthy career in Japan's major leagues.
