On September 9, 1992 — In front of a sellout crowd at County Stadium, Robin Yount becomes the 17th and third youngest player to reach the 3000 hits milestone when he singles off of Indian reliever Jose Mesa in a 5-4 defeat to Cleveland. Only Hank Aaron and Ty Cobb reached the exclusive mark at younger ages. The 36 year-old Milwaukee center fielder also reached 1,000 and 2,000 hit plateaus against the Indians.

He also becomes only the 2nd player in history to record 200 home runs, 200 stolen bases and 100 triples, duplicating Willie Mays’ feat.
