1992 HEADLINE: George Brett Joins The 3,000 Hits Club!!!
On this day in 1992, George Brett collected hit number 3,000 of his amazing baseball career!!!
On the road playing the Angels, Brett’s Kansas City Royals teammates were playing in front of 17,000+ fans. If the baseball fans in the Los Angeles area knew that history was going to be made on this day, I would have to imagine that more people would have been in attendance.
For the day, Brett put on quite a display of hitting excellence. Going 4-for-5, he hit 1 double and 3 singles.
George Brett finished his Hall of Fame career with 3,154 hits and ranks as 15th in baseball history for career hits.
Happy Anniversary Mr. Brett!!!
