So that's what he's been up to.
Murton recorded his 211th hit this season with a single to center for the Hanshin Tigers today in a game against the Yakult Swallows.
To be fair, when Ichiro set the mark in 1994, the season consisted of 130 games. It's since been extended by 14 games and Murton was hitting in his 142nd game of the campaign.
Still, not a bad first year across the ocean for the redhead.
