Meet the members of the most exclusive club in Major League Baseball. There is no award, there are no ceremonies, but nothing can compare to the pride and glory felt by a player as he hits that miracle milestone: 3,000. Since Cap Anson first reached the mark in 1897, only twenty-eight baseball players have ever heard the crack of ball and bat over 2,999 times; this newly updated edition of The 3,000 Hit Club captures the unique stories and career highlights of each one. 
In this distinctive collection of history and stats, veteran sportswriter Fred McMane takes readers onto the field and up to the plate with baseball’s greatest players. From Pete Rose and Willie Mays to Ricky Henderson and Derek Jeter, The 3,000 Hit Club has it all.
