This is a major major accomplishment. He is to be commended. As you say to break a record that old that no one has appraoched in in decades is amazing.

The Suzuki Method seems to work.

Here's to a solid all-around ballplayer!

And here's to the great George Sisler!

What an awesome accomplishment.

Here's an MLB link to the all-time single season hit list:

http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/stats_historical/mlb_historical_leaders.jsp?statType=1&sortByStat=H&timeFrame=3&timeSubFrame2=4

Boggs got 240 in 1985, and Carew and Don Mattingly got 238. Ichiro could/should get 266-265. Wow.

One quibble: Since the AL has the DH, how many extra times per year does a typical leadoff person bat? I'm not going to be a sourpuss and say he doesn't deserve his props, but it is worth knowing, IMHO.
