Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki notched his 4,000th professional hit in Wednesday's win over the Blue Jays, joining Pete Rose, Ty Cobb, Hank Aaron and Stan Musial as the only men to ever reach the milestone (minor league totals included). Of course, over 1,200 of Ichiro's hits came in Japan, causing some people to downplay the significance of his achievement.

Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan joined the SportsDash crew to discuss Ichiro's 4,000th hit and his importance to baseball history.
