This Day in Milwaukee Brewers History: Robin Yount’s 3000th Hit
Robin Yount said on the leadup to his 3000th hit that it wasn’t going to be a big deal. The man who took more pride in his Milwaukee Brewers winning ballgames than personal stats found out he was wrong – the 3000 hit plateau was a huge deal. On September 9, 1992, a crowd of 47,589 packed Milwaukee County Stadium to see history made when Yount became the 17th MLB player to reach the mark. He tied Roberto Clemente for 16th on the list.
