2000 Fleer – “Club 3,000″ – Stan Musial

Date of entry into “Club 3,000″ – May 13, 1958

The Story – On the road and battling their rivals, the Chicago Cubs, there were just under 6,000 fans in attendance to see Stan Musial record hit number 3,000 of his career.  Used as a pinch hitter in the game, Musial entered the contest in the 6th inning.  And in his lone at-bat, he laced a double off of Cubs’ pitcher Moe Drabowsky. 

Baseball History – Musial has 3,630 career hits as a major leaguer.  That total puts him solidly at 4th place on the all-time list.  It looks as if that spot will be his for quite some time!
