Congratulations to Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins, who collected his franchise record 2, 235th base hit today vs the Chicago Cubs.
Rollins, the 2007 National League MVP, singled off former Detroit Tigers RHP Edwin Jackson in the 5th inning, passing Phillies Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt.
The Phillies top five hit leaders in history are... #5, Del Ennis, 1,812.. #4, "Big Ed" Delahanty, 2,213... #3, my favorite Phillies player...Richie Ashburn, 2,317, Schmidt, 2,234, and Jimmy Rollins.
Rollins, the Phillies second round draft pick.in 1996, has always been one of my favorite of the current big league players.
Rollins loves the game, always seems to be having fun on the ball field, and he wears #11...my favorite baseball uniform number.
