    Ichiro Suzuki reached the major leagues at age 27, after playing nine seasons in Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball league. He’s furiously making up for lost time in his compilation of incredible major-league statistics. Ichiro notched his 200th hit of the season on Thursday, giving him 10 200-hit seasons out of 10 seasons total.

And Ichiro already shares the all-time record for 200-hit seasons with...

But Sisler's record has rested comfortably ever since -- until this season. Mariners right fielder Ichiro Suzuki used speed, bat control,...

    SEATTLE (AP) -- There was a no-no at Safeco Field this weekend and it had nothing to do with New York pitcher Ted Lilly's near feat. This one was a scolding. Seattle Mariners fans who tried to wear ``Yankees Suck'' T-shirts during a three-game series against New York were told to turn their shirts inside out, take them off or leave. ``We may lead the league in ejections from the ballpark, but not because fans are misbehaving more here but because we don't tolerate much,'' team spokeswoman Rebecca Hale said. ``This is about appropriate behavior. We have a code of...
