Yankees outfielder/designated hitter Alfonso Soriano singled to center field off Mets right-hander Bartolo Colon in the bottom of the second inning this evening at Yankee Stadium. In doing so, the 38-year-old reached an interesting benchmark.
The single was Soriano’s 1,000th hit in the American League, making him the seventh player ever to amass 1,000 hits in each league. The other six players in that group are Dave Winfield, Frank Robinson, Vladimir Guerrero, Fred McGriff, Carlos Lee, and Orlando Cabrera.
Soriano has had two stints with the Yankees and one with the Rangers in the American League. He had 1,077 hits in the National League between the Nationals and Cubs.
