4192 Hits Twenty Five Years Ago

Twenty five years ago, Cincinnati Reds' Pete Rose hit his 4,192nd hit of his career. He would end his career with 4,256 hits. The closest player to Rose? Ty Cobb, 4,191 hits. The closest player still in a uniform? Derek Jeter, 2899 hits. Jeter is 36 years old. If he plays four more years at two hundred hits a year, he won't come close. That's how great Pete Rose is.

Below is a news story on the great event.
