Rose batted .300 for the eighth straight season. He led the league in hits for the fourth time. Rose admitted that "he'd like to reach 3000 hits someday". He expects to hit the 2,000 mark in 1973.
Not on the card - he did surpass 2,000 in 1973. He passed 3,000 on his way to 4,256 hits. I like the commas.
Not on the card - his son had two career hits - one off of Kevin Appier and one off of Jason Schmidt. Neither of these two pitched while Pete Sr. was still playing.
