July 18, 1970
In his 2,639th major league game, Giants outfielder Willie Mays singles off of Expos right-hander Mike Wegener for his 3000th hit. Mays reaches the milestone in the second inning of San Francisco’s 10-1 rout of Montreal at Candlestick Park.
I used to love the Willie Mays cartoon show when I was a kid back in the 70’s. Everybody loved Willie Mays.
