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

Rod Carew? Check

We asked you a couple of weeks ago which baseball players you'd like to see us add to our collection. We listened. First we signed Dale Murphy and now it's Rod Carew.  We finalized a deal with the Hall of Famer on Friday so look for his Twins and Angels jerseys in the spring.

We're still working on the others...hopefully more good news soon.
