Yankees A-Rod's 3000 Hit - 12" x 16" Print
Few milestones encapsulate greatness over decades like reaching 3,000 career hits. Recent controversies might make us forget how awesome of a player Alex Rodriguez was throughout his career, but even after all of the drama, it’s tough not to enjoy a historic moment like this one.
A-Rod’s 3,000th hit was flashy, a perfect metaphor for his entire body of work as an MLB player. He launched a home run off the Tigers’ ace Justin Verlander and “did it in style,” to quote Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay. His 3,000th hit was just the third one of its kind to leave the ballpark and second-straight after his former teammate Derek Jeter did it in 2011. He and Jeter are also the only players to notch their 3,000th knock in pinstripes.
