MIAMI (AP) - Ichiro Suzuki has donated to the Hall of Fame some of the gear he wore when he collected his 3,000th career hit, including his jersey, a pair of cleats, his arm guard and batting gloves.

The Suzuki collection at the Hall of Fame numbered more than two dozen items even before Sunday’s triple at Colorado, which made him the first Japanese player to reach 3,000 hits. When he and his Miami Marlins teammates returned to Marlins Park to begin a homestand Monday night, Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson was there to collect additional Suzuki souvenirs.

Suzuki, a baseball history buff, has visited Cooperstown six times.
