That's a bigtime record to break. Congrats Ichiro! Too bad it's been mired with some controversy. Some baseball purists were suggesting that Ichiro's record should have something akin to an asterisk next to it since he acheived this in the era of the 162 game series. Hasn't anyone learned from the terribly time Roger Maris was put through when he held the single season homerun record? The stupidity of some people is really staggering at times.
