ANNIVERSARY OF 4,192 9.11.10
25 years ago today...
According to Ty Cobb’s baseball-reference.com page, he only had 4,189
hits. Evidently in 1910 Cobb was erroneously credited twice for a 2-for-4
performance. So, if we are to believe baseball-reference.com (which
I am inclined to do), Rose actually passed
Cobb’s total on September 8, 1985, in Chicago…not September 11, 1985, in
Cincinnati against the Padres.
The record was broken in the first inning when Rose hit a single, his
4,190th career hit, off Cubs pitcher Reggie Patterson. Hit #4,191
(originally believed to be the Ty-tying hit) came in the top of the 5th,
again a single off Reggie Patterson.
