1979 HEADLINE: Lou Brock Joins The ’3,000 Hits Club’!!!!
On this day in 1979 Lou Brock connected for the 3,000th hit of his career.
In front of his home crowd of almost 45,000 fans at Busch Stadium, Brock went 2-for-2 on the day and made baseball history in front of the most loyal fans in the game.
The victim that day was Dennis Lamp of the Chicago Cubs who gave up singles to Brock in both the second and fourth innings. It’s kind of ironic that Brock’s historic achievement came against his former team huh??
Congratulations Mr. Brock!!!
