42-year-old Miami Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki is on track to hit a number of milestones this season, most notable of which is his chase for 3,000 hits in an MLB uniform.

On Friday, Ichiro crossed two achievements off his list recording his 2,944th hit and stealing the 500th base of his major-league career.

Ichiro's hit total moved him into 33rd place all-time ahead of Frank Robinson, while his 500 stolen bases is the most among active players and ranks him 38th all-time.

He also became just the eighth player in MLB history to reach 500 stolen bases and 2,900-plus hits in a major-league career.

If you combine his 16 seasons of MLB baseball with his nine seasons in Japan, Ichiro has swiped 698 bags, which would put him 11th on the all-time list for career stolen bases.
