"I'm not trying to take anything away from Ichiro, he's had a Hall of Fame career, but the next thing you know, they'll be counting his high-school hits." - PETE ROSE, as quoted in USA Today.

Ichiro Suzuki's ninth-inning double in the Marlins' 6-3 loss to the Padres at Petco Park raises his professional hit total to 4,257, surpassing Pete Rose's all-time major league mark. The 42 year-old outfielder's total includes the 1,278 hits he collected for Orix in Japan's Pacific League.
