Pete's 69 today how time flies. Happy Birthday to you and many more to come. I noticed something yesterday that I can guarantee will never happen in baseball history again I'm willing to bet my 1963 Rookie card on it. No player will ever hit his 4,000th hit on the exact date as his #1 hit that all happened yesterday the 13th. A pretty safe bet as the 4,000 hit club seems pretty safe at 2 members for the foreseeable future. Only player I could see getting close would have been Ichiro if he played his entire career in the US.1,278 japan hits + as of 12th 2,038 mlb hits = 3,316 hits at age 37 impressive a tad ahead of Roses pace.
Enjoy the day and send Pete a birthday greeting.
