MLB’s 3,000-Hit Club: Who’s Next?
Who is up to the task to follow Miggy into the 3,000 hit club?Creative Commons Attribution 2.0. Baseball fans were treated to a special moment over the weekend as Miguel Cabrera became the 33rd player in MLB history to reach 3,000 career hits. Even more impressively, he became just the seventh batter to surpass both 3,000 hits and 500 home runs. He also joined Hank Aaron and Willie Mays as the only men with 3,000 hits, 500 homers, and a career batting average over .300. No wonder Aaron Boone intentionally walked him on Thursday.
Miggy's Historic April Tops In Tigers History
Detroit has seen some incredible performances in the first month of the season. The Tigers have had some great starts to the year in their history, twice starting a season 21-4 as a team. They have also had some incredible personal performances, from Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera in 2013 posting wRC+ scores of 172 and 174 respectively, to Chris Shelton hitting nine home runs in the first 13 games in 2006 before coming back to earth, to Jack Morris throwing his first no-hitter on April 7, 1984. However, none can match the historical impact of what baseball fans have witnessed this April from Miguel Cabrera.
