Pete Rose got 4,256 hits in the Major Leagues, the most all time. Frank Thomas, a first ballot Hall of Famer, began his career with seven straight inner-circle Hall of Fame seasons. Alex Rodriguez hit 696 home runs in the big leagues and received MVP votes in 15 seasons.
Watching this is well worth 5 or 6 minutes.
Arod is great on TV. Oh, and how great is Pete Rose showing how he'd change his position in the batters box, rather than ever tinker with his swing, to get out of a slump? Simplifying the task of hitting a baseball commands a sort of brilliance.
