Over his 18 year career in the majors, Ichiro Suzuki never had more than 15 home runs in a single season, and hasn’t hit the double-digit home run mark since 2009. But Suzuki’s game is about the long ball; rather, it’s about his machine-like ability to simply get on base, and advance his teammates. Between 2001 and 2010, Suzuki led all of baseball in singles hit every single year, accumulating more than 200 hits in each of those years. If you do the math, that means he’s good for at least one hit every single game. His 262 hits in a single year in 2004 remains an American League record. On top of that, Suzuki perennially ranked among the players with the least hits that resulted in double-plays by the opposing team.
