Ichiro Ties Ruth On All Time Hits List With 2,873

On Monday, Ichiro Suzuki tied Babe Ruth for #42 on the all time hits list with his 2,873 career hit.

The 41-year old outfielder came into the 2015 season needing only 156 hits to reach 3000 in his amazing career.  But Suzuki has been on the decline since the 2009 season when he had 225 hits.

Since, he has recorded 214 (2010), 184 (2011), 178 (2012), 136 (2013), 102 (2014) and so far to think that 3000 is reachable, may be far fetched for the aging superstar, but along the way he will still have opportunities to pass some of the greatest names on his journey to possibly reach 3000.

Those names include Mel Ott at 2876, Roger Hornsby at 2930, and Frank Robinson at 2943, just to name a few.

Ichiro and Alex Rodriguez are the only active-players close to reaching 3000, with A-Rod only 29 hits away from the milestone.
