“3000, History with an Exclamation point!”

(June 19, 2015)

Days following Rodriguez’s 2,000th career RBI, he delivered his 3,000th hit in the most dramatic fashion possible.

In the first inning against the Detroit Tigers, Rodriguez crushed a solo home run off Justin Verlander to record yet another career milestone. All but only two other players to hit 3,000 hits have been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame (Barry Bonds and Rafael Palmeiro).

Rodriguez finished his career with 3,115 hits and sits 22nd on the all-time hit’s leaderboard.

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
