On September 2, 1962 — 1962 – Stan Musial’s 3,516th hit jumps him over Tris Speaker and into 2nd place behind Ty Cobb on the all-time list, but the Mets beat the Cards, 4 – 3. Although The Man will continue on to 3,630 hits, he cannot overtake Cobb and, in time, Pete Rose and Hank Aaron will surpass him.
