1996 HEADLINE – Eddie Murray Joins The 3,000/5oo Club!!!
On this day in 1996, Eddie Murray became the 3rd member of the 3,000 hits/500 home run club!!!
Of all of the offensive stats that are recognized in the baseball world, I find the combination of the 3,000 hits and 500 home runs stats to be the perfect combination resulting in a complete offensive threat.
So on this day, Eddie Murray joined Willie Mays and Hank Aaron in the most elite and exclusive club in baseball. His entry into this club helps stake his claim as one of the greatest offensive players to ever play the game of baseball.
Congratulations and Happy Anniversary Eddie Murray!!!
