Tue Mar 2715:103,000 hits milestone could be even more elusive after Pujols
Robinson Cano dreamed as a kid of going to bat with the bases loaded, two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning in Game 7 of the World Series and hitting a home run.There was also a milestone number that seemed so improbable: 3,000 hits."You dream one day what if feels like to win an MVP, to be an All-Star, to win a Gold Glove" said Cano, the Seattle Mariners' second baseman. "When you're a kid, you think, 'I wish I could get 3,000 one day.' ... It's one of those things that once you get to the big leagues you know how hard it is, and then you understand at the same time there are not too many guys that get 3,000 hits. It's hard."Just how hard?There are only 31 players who have done it. And the only two active in the majors are 44-year-old outfielder Ichiro Suzuki, back with Seattle; and Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre, the 3,000-hit club's newest member .And that milestone could be becoming even more elusive."Longevity is one thing," said A.J. Hinch, manager of the World Se... [More]
