    He's the coolest and most unique player I've ever seen. As we all know hitting is only part of it with this freak, his arm and speed are also off the charts. Hard to believe he could get 3,000 hits over here after already playing a career in Japan and joining mlb at 27.

    One of the most unique players to play the game. I would even say he is underrated in what he has done and accomplished.

    I recall reading am article about him and he said when he started playing in Japan his coaches tried getting him to stop doing his hitting style. He refused to and told them he was going to play the game the way he wanted. The rest in history.

    I wonder how many people have gotten their 3000 hit with a triple
