2000th Hit for Jackson
2000th Hit for Jackson
Friday, September 18th, 1981: Reggie Jackson has gone through many bats during his playing career. None of them means as much to him as the one he used to crack career hit number 2000 at Metropolitan Stadium yesterday.

The 35-year-old Twins left fielder told reporters after the game, "I plan to keep this bat at home in my own private Hall of Fame."

It was a happy day for Jackson from the standpoint of the 2000-hit milestone, but a little disappointing, too. Despite his achievement, Minnesota dropped the contest to the California Angels 5-1.

For the day Jackson finished the day with 1 hit in 4 at-bats.

His lifetime stats show that Jackson has hit .271 and connected for 422 home runs.
