A crowd of 60,561 attends the game in Bush Stadium in St. Louis, where Pete Rose of the Philadelphia Phillies breaks Stan Musial’s all-time National League hit record with hit No. 3,631 when he singles to the opposite field off Cardinal hurler Mark Littell. The Phillies first baseman is congratulated on the field by Stan Musial, who previously held the mark, in front of 60,561 enthusiastic fans at Veterans Stadium.
