pitcher Mike Trombley, June 30, 1995. Though best known as a Baltimore Oriole, Murray
garnered hit #3000 playing for Cleveland, thus becoming the third man to reach the
3,000-hit plateau while wearing an Indians uniform (Nap Lajoie and Tris Speaker are the
other two). Murray also joined Pete Rose as the only switch-hitters in the Club.
Murray's landmark hit occurred just a few miles away from St. Paul, Minnesota, the home town of two other members of the ClubDave Winfield and the next man to collect 3,000 hits: Paul Molitor.
