1992, to reach the 3,000-hit plateau. Coincidentally, Yount's 1,000th and 2,000th hits
also came against the Indians. At 36 years, 11 months, and 24 days old, Yount was the
third youngest member of the 3,000-Hit Club, behind Ty Cobb (34 years, 8 months, 1 day)

Just three weeks after Yount's historic hit, fellow 1999 Hall of Fame Inductee George Brett joined his friend in the 3,000-Hit Club.
