  • 2000 Hits with the Braves

    AJ just notched his 2000th hit tonight. Who else has gotten his 2000th hit in a Braves uniform. Of course, Henry Aaron, Eddie Mathews, and Chipper Jones. I also seem to recall BJ Surhoff. Maybe, Mcgriff did as well. That's all I am coming up with at the moment.

    I dunno, maybe Fred Tenney, maybe Dale Murphy, though Murphy faded fast- probably didn't make it.

    BJ Surhoff? BJ Surhoff? What?

      Yes, BJ Surhoff got his 2000th hit with Atlanta. In case I was unclear for anyone, I mean actual hit number 2000 in a Braves uniform and not at least 2000 hits with Braves.

        Oh. sorry- misread it. Thought you meant 2000 hits with the Braves.

          No problem, I noticed my initial post was unclear when I reread it. Tenney and Murphy were good guesses. I looked them up, but they both fell just short of hitting their 2000 while with the Braves and got it elsewhere. I did find one more who got his 2000th hit with the Braves. But, I'll let anyone guess if they want before revealing him.

            Pendleton?
            And as an avid 80's baseball card collector, I'm surprised Murphy didn't make it. Somewhat like Mattingly, he was a few years too early to be part of an eventual "dynasty". (Yes, I used the D word!)

              No, it was Murph's general collapse and lack of 400 homers that kept him out. Hall voters had a chance to use the character clause to put him in, but they're only interested in using it to keep people out.

                Unfortunately, Pendleton finished a little short of 2000. It was a good guess though.

                  I think I'm going to "cheat" and look stuff up :P It's really tough to get the in-betweens.

                    Looking some more tonight, there are at least two more.

                      Fred Tenney didn't do it. Herman Long did if you count his American Association hits.

                      (Answers were here. I'll say them later. :P )

                        I think my last guesses would be Joe Torre (I think he played for the braves?), or Horner? Andruw Jones I don't think reached it yet.

                        Good question. Makes you rack your brain for the "Hall of Very Good"-caliber players. Ted Simmons?

                          Cool, I had not found Long. But, I just found one more. So there are at least three remaining.

                            Two more good guesses. I looked up Torre and he got his 2000th with the Cardinals. Simmons got his with the Brewers a couple of years before he came to Atlanta.

                              I've found four that haven't been said (backing you up here!)

                              EDIT: In total, including Pierzynski, there are 14 people at my last count.

                              1. Hank Aaron
                              2. Eddie Mathews
                              3. Chipper Jones
                              4. B. J. Surhoff
                              5. Herman Long
                              6. A. J. Pierzynski

                              Eight more to go!
