Rod Carew Gets 3,000 Hits!

On August 4, 1985 Rod Carew gets his 3000th hit!

Rod Carew played in the Major Leagues from 1967 - 1985 playing with only two teams - Minnesota Twins & California Angels. Throughout his nineteen year career he has made it to the All-Star game fifteen times.

"The astonishing thing about (Rod) Carew is that he hits everybody. You think you spot a weakness in him, and it may work for 3 or 4 at-bats, but then he catches on and its bang-bang-bang all over again." - Orioles Hitting Coach Jim Frey
