Nap Lajoie knocks his 3,000th hit of his Major League career against Detroit off of Pug Cavet. Lajoie joins a then exclusive club, including just Honus Wagner and Cap Anson, as the only players to reach the milestone.
The 1914 season was Lajoie’s final year in Cleveland. He concluded his career back in Philadelphia for two years with the Athletics, returning to the city he previously had played for with both the Athletics and the Phillies at the beginning of his career. He played 21 seasons in total between Philadelphia and Cleveland and finished with 3,243 hits.
