On this day in 1990, George Brett became the first player in major league baseball history to collect batting titles in three different decades.
A true testament to his dedication to the game and excellence as a hitter, George Brett separated himself from some of the game’s greatest hitters with this accomplishment. To be able to remain at such a high standard for more than 20 seasons and in between three decades shows just how truly great Brett was at the plate. Let’s not forget that the game changed, and the pitchers Brett faced during that time also changed.
A quick glance at the numbers shows this:
Now how awesome is that?
Congratulations on this magnificent achievement Mr. Brett!!!
