On October 1, 2004, Ichiro Suzuki, with the second of his two singles, a ground ball through the box, makes history, breaking the major league record for hits in a single season. The third-inning historic safety by the Mariner outfielder from Japan surpasses George Sisler’s 84 year-old mark of 257 hits established in 1920 with the St. Louis Browns. He will finish the season with 262 hits.
