Jason Kendall Joins 2000 Hit Club

Jason Kendall picked up his 2000th hit when he singled to right center in the second inning in the Brewers 8-4 win over the Cardinals. He became the 255th player to join the 2000 hits club.

Kendall said after the game that he appreciates more than ever the guys who have 3000 hits. The 3000 hit club is more exclusive with only 27 members.

The only players with 3000 hits not in the Hall of Fame are Pete Rose with 4,256 hits, Craig Biggio with 3,060 and Rafael Palmeiro with 3,020.

While Kendall was getting his 2000th hit in St. Louis Todd Helton a native of  Knoxville, Tennessee almost had his 2000th hit in Atlanta but it was called an error.

Rockies manager Clint Hurdle called the press box after the game to request a meeting with scorekeeper Jack Wilkinson and that meeting will be before today’s game with the Braves. If Wilkinson changes his ruling to a hit then two players would have had their 2000th hit on the same night.

The ball was hit sharply to Yunel Escobar the Braves shortstop and he apparently never even touched the ball and he was surprised to see it ruled an error.

Other players who may reach the 2000 hit plateau this season include Bobby Abreu with 1,985 hits, Miguel Tejada 1.962, Brian Giles 1,878, Magglio Ordonez 1,864 and Ichiro Suzuki with 1,848 hits.

There are only three players who may register their 2500th hit this season. They are Manny Ramirez with 2,424 hits, Alex Rodriguez with 2,409 hits and Garret Anderson with 2,383 hits.
