With that swing of the bat, Reggie Abercrombie has set the record for most career hits in the American Association of Baseball!
Abercrombie tied the record with a home run in the 1st inning…then SET the record with his 802nd hit in the 3rd.
(He eventually added to his record, with a single in the 9th for hit #803)
Afterwards, it was all love and hugs for #11!
