Professional hitter.

So I wanted to post a nice card of Michael Young to mark him becoming the Rangers all time hits leader. Decided to go with a card from a set that somehow has really got me stuck on it. Here he is on card number P-21 of the 2005 Prime Patches set. This particular card is the quad game used version and is numbered 71/150.

Last night Michael passed Ivan Rodriguez as the player with the most hits in a Rangers uniform. Michael's 1,748th hit scored two runs and helped Texas down the Marlins last night. Notably, Young managed to pass Pudge with just about 15 or so more at-bats. Not too bad.

This makes Young one of just four players to hold the all-time hits record with their current teams. The others are Derek Jeter, Carl Crawford, and Todd Helton. Not bad company.

Congratulations Michael! Hope to see you with the team for quite some time. Good luck adding to the record.
