About the Book

It typically takes 20 years of consistent excellence for a baseball player to reach the coveted milestone of 3,000 hits or strikeouts. Some of the great players to accomplish this feat are well-known: Willie Mays, Henry Aaron, Walter Johnson, Nolan Ryan. But who are the other men who’ve reached that epic 3,000 milestone?
This book goes into detail about each of these players, describing how each player collected his historic hit or strikeout and how old he was at the time. Discover the pitchers who gave up a 3,000th hit and the victims of a 3,000th strikeout. Determine where these players were born and the stadiums where the events took place. This book covers the near-miss men—the ones who almost made it to the milestone—and predict which players might reach 3,000 hits or strikeouts next. This comprehensive volume tracks all players who have reached this impressive achievement, all who missed it by a hair, and some who might be poised to claim the title.
