Year: 2001
Team: Seattle Mariners
Ichiro Suzuki’s rookie year is one for the record books, even though some would argue that even though it was his first season in the MLB, he was 26-year-old and had already played in the Japanese league for nearly a decade. Regardless, Ichiro dazzled fans in Seattle when he arrived in 2001, with 242 hits, 56 stolen bases and 127 runs. He hit .350/.281/.457. “Legit” rookie or not, Ichiro’s numbers were astounding, and won him both the AL Rookie of the Year award and MVP title.
