What a tremendous feat! Only three other players in the history of the game achieved 3,000 hits and 500 home runs: Eddie Murray, Hank Aaron and Willie Mays. To accomplish this, you need to have consistency, hard work, determination and good health. Raffy did it! Certainly, he will be in the Hall of Fame. I like the way he goes about his work — no publicity, quiet and unassuming. This has got to be the quietest accomplishment I’ve ever seen. He really started to come on strong as the O’s progressed during the season. Congratulations!
