Season summary[edit]

Playing against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium on August 14, Ichiro Suzuki tied and passed a hits milestone. Ichiro collected his 4,191st hit in top-level professional baseball off Cardinals starting pitcher Jaime García, matching Ty Cobb. It was Suzuki's 2,913th hit in Major League Baseball, following 1,278 hits in nine seasons in the Nippon Professional Baseball league in Japan.[1] He passed Cobb the next night with two singles off John Lackey.[2]

In popular culture[edit]

In the 1989 film Back to the Future Part II, a Major League Baseball team from Miami plays in the 2015 World Series, losing to the Chicago Cubs. Although the city of Miami has created a professional baseball team since 1989, the 2015 team was in the National League and thus, could not have played the Cubs in the World Series. The 2015 Chicago Cubs competed in the National League Championship Series.
