1984 HEADLINE: Pete Rose Collects Hit #4,000
Just 8 games into the 1984 baseball season, and in front of 46,000+ fans in Montreal’s Olympic Stadium, Pete Rose made baseball history by becoming just the second player to collect 4,000 hits.
On his home turf, and facing his former team, Rose’s Expos were taking on the Philadelphia Phillies. In the bottom of the 4th inning, Rose smacked a double off of Jerry Koosman giving him 4,000 hits for his career.
Rose was the first player to collect 4,000 hits since the legendary Ty Cobb.
Congratulations to ‘Charlie Hustle’!!
