On Sunday night, Michael Young joined a very unheralded group of players, when he got his 2,000th career hit as a Texas Ranger. This is normally not a very talked about feat and usually is just a small note in the papers, but there are some interesting facts with which this number has become more special. Michael Young has been the consumate teammate and an on field leader who has been nothing but true class. He has made numerous moves at the request of the organization and continually puts the needs of the team before himself. But even with all of that, there are still people who won’t give Michael Young the credit he deserves, It will not be noted except in the fine print that Young got to his 2,000th hit quicker than the following players, Paul Molitor, George Brett and Ted Williams. 1207 days
