1992 HEADLINE: Robin Yount Joins The ’3,000 Hits Club’
On this day back in 1992, Robin Yount collected hit number 3,000 of your career – a true testament to his talent and dedication to the game of baseball.
At home, and in front of 47,000+ Brewers fans, Yount took center stage as he entered the game with 2,999 career hits. All of the fans in attendance were there to witness baseball history and it would not take too long for that to occur. In the bottom of the 7th inning, Yount hit a single off of Indians pitcher Jose Mesa as he collected hit #3,000.
What is also extremely impressive about this feat is that Robin Yount routinely had 150+ hits per season. He was a skilled and patient hitter and never struck out more than 94 times in a single year!!
Congratulations Mr. Yount!!!
