Headline – “Pete Rose Passes Ty Cobb For The Most Singles In History”
The Story – Cincinnati, Ohio, September 30, 1984: Reds’ Pete Rose continued his assault on the records books this season. He surpassed Carl Yastrzemski’s record of 3,308 games and finished campaign with 3,082 singles, more one-base hits than anyone in history.
