The Story – Playing for the California Angles, Carew was at home in front of 41,000 fans waiting for him to make history.  In his 19th and final season in the big leagues, Carew entered the game just 1 hit shy of the rare milestone of 3,000.  It didn’t take long for Carew to thrill the fans and put himself into elite company.  In the bottom of the third inning, Carew hit a single off of Twins’ pitcher Frank Viola and the crowd went wild.

Baseball History – At the time of his retirement, Rod Carew collected 3,053 hits.  Currently he ranks in 22nd place on the all-time list!!!
