On this day in Baseball History September 16, 1996: Three years to the day when Dave Winfield hit his 3000th hit, Paul Molitor of the Minnesota Twins becomes the first member of the 3000th hit club to do so by hitting a triple in the top of the fifth innings against pitcher Jose Rosado of Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City. In doing so, Molitor became the 21st member of the 3,000 hit club.

I really like the Home Plate Terrace Seats, but they’re not so good for pictures, unless you like their backs :p

Wishing Trevor Plouffe a fast and smooth recovery. Looking forward to 2015!!
April 2009 - Phil Hughes on the mound for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.
Hughes, with the Minnesota Twins this year, fell just one out short of meeting an incentive that would have given him a $500,000 bonus. The Twins offered to give him the money anyway, but he refused to accept it. (!)
Hughes had 186 strikeouts and just 16 walks this season. His 11.6/1 K/BB ratio is the best in MLB history.
