Eddie Murray Is Just 1 Of 4 Players To Collect 3,000 Hits & 500 Home Runs!!!

There are many rare feats in accomplished in a baseball career.  And these feats are what preserves the history of the game’s greatest players.  Without these benchmarks, there would be little that we could use to compare a player that plays in 2011 to one that suited up 50 years prior.

From an offensive standpoint, the two most celebrated feats are 3,000 hits and 500 home runs.  To have a resume that includes either of these statistical landmarks is a golden ticket to Cooperstown(most of the time).

And on occasion, a very rare occasion, a player is able to mix the two – creating the perfect blend of power and skill to become a member of the ‘3000 hits & 500 Home Run Club’.

To date, only four men have mastered this feat.  Eddie Murray is one of those men.  A very rare feat accomplished by an amazingly talented baseball player!!

  1. Brian,
    Hi! Thanks for this interesting piece of baseball history. Murray was a little under rated in his time.
