2 Point Lead: Ode to Ichiro


Since he entered Major League Baseball in 2001, Ichiro has posted numbers that make him a lock for the Hall of Fame. But what makes it even more astounding: He didn't make his debut until he was 27 years old.

He'll likely eclipse 3,000 MLB hits next season with the Miami Marlins, but if you factor in his nine seasons playing professionally in Japan, he's already raked in over 4,000 hits.

Including Japanese ball, Ichiro has posted 11 200-hit seasons. He won a gold glove and made the All-Star team in each of his first 10 MLB years, while taking home two batting titles, a stolen base title, an MVP and Rookie of the Year award.

Watch 2 Point Lead host Yannis Pappas take a deeper dive into the numbers, explaining why Ichiro is a sure-fire Hall of Famer.
