The 3,000 Hit Club: Stories of Baseball's Greatest Hitters | [Fred McMane, Stuart Shea]

The 3,000 Hit Club: Stories of Baseball's Greatest Hitters

It is an exclusive club. So exclusive that it has only 23 members. Not everyone can join. Membership is reserved for only those select few who were able to collect 3,000 hits during their Major League Baseball careers. Babe Ruth did not make it. Neither did Lou Gehrig. Rogers Hornsby won seven batting titles, but is not a member. Neither is Joe DiMaggio. The men who are included were unique in their personalities, yet they all shared two common threads that link them together: durability and consistency.

Audible Editor Reviews

In no other sport are statistics and records held in higher esteem than in baseball, so when a player joins the 3,000-hit club, it signifies baseball immortality. Fred McMane and Stuart Shea's meticulously researched and entertaining book sheds light on each member of this exclusive, twenty-eight member club, and illustrates the perseverance, talent, and hard work needed to achieve this milestone.

Many of the players profiled are towering, legendary figures of the sport, and Richard Davidson's full, authoritative baritone nicely matches the larger-than-life quality of many of these accounts.

Publisher's Summary

It is an exclusive club. So exclusive that it has only 23 members. Not everyone can join. Membership is reserved for only those select few who were able to collect 3,000 hits during their Major League Baseball careers. Babe Ruth did not make it. Neither did Lou Gehrig.

The men who are included were unique in their personalities, yet they all shared two common threads that link them together: durability and consistency.

The 3,000 Hit Club takes a close look at the men who comprise this special club. From the angry Ty Cobb to the hard-drinking Paul Waner to the avowed racist Cap Anson to new members Tony Gwynn and Wade Boggs, each chapter explores the lives of these gifted men and the challenges, controversies, and conflicts they had to overcome to achieve their goal.
