On September 11, 1985 — Pete Rose becomes baseball’s all-time hit leader, singling to left-center off Eric Show in the 1st inning of the Reds’ 2 – 0 win over San Diego. His 4,192nd career hit breaks Ty Cobb’s record before 47,237 fans at Cincinnati’s Riverfront Stadium. Rose had tied the record at Wrigley Field on September 8 with a single off the Cubs’ Reggie Patterson in a game that was later suspended due to darkness, enabling Rose to break the record at home.
