Sick accomplishment by one of my favorite players of all time :rock:

There we have it! Ichiro singles in the 5th to make it 10 consecutive years of 200+ hits. #Ichiro200

TORONTO -- Ichiro Suzuki stroked a fifth-inning single to center to collect his 200th hit Thursday, tying a Major League record by reaching the milestone for the 10th time in his career.

Ichiro is the first player to record 200 hits in 10 consecutive seasons to extend his own record.

The Mariners dugout, along with the fans at Rogers Centre gave the Japanese native a standing ovation. Following roughly 30 second of applause, Ichiro removed his cap and acknowledged the crowd. The ball, fielded by center-fielder Vernon Wells, was promptly retrieved by a Mariners staff member.

10th season in the MLB, 10th season 200+ hits and he won ROY and MVP in the same year, too.

That's just amazing. Congrats to Ichiro, definitely one of the best players of all time.

You see this little hole? This moth's just about to emerge. It's in there right now, struggling. It's digging it's way through the thick hide of the cocoon. Now, I could help it - take my knife, gently widen the opening, and the moth would be free - but it would be too weak to survive. Struggle is nature's way of strengthening it." - John Locke

Just amazing. For those who have played the game of baseball, you know exactly how hard it is to hit a baseball.

To do it consistently over a ten year period is just astonishing. Ichiro has always been one of my favorite players since he entered the league. Congrats to him!

I'm no baseball fan, and I doubt I ever will be, but that is just one amazing feat. I have trouble hitting a softball and this guy manages to hit 200 baseballs consistently in for 10 years in his 10th year of professional MLB career.

Amazing. Simply amazing. Makes me like baseball a bit more than usual.

His speed really helps him tremendously as well to say the least. He gets to first base just on time more often than possibly any player in the league.

hes not tops in infield hits though, this guy is just a straight up hitting machine.

Whether he's tops or not, there's no doubt that he beats out a lot of plays to first base, much more than the average guy. Still not trying to deny his tremendous hitting ability as well, but just saying, his speed and beating out plays to first base for a lot of hits certainly doesn't not help him either.

Maybe in total hits combined with his MLB and Japanese totals, but there is no way he passes Rose with MLB hits alone...
