This great vintage t-shirt commemorates the moment in baseball history when Pete "Lil' Charlie Hustle" Rose broke Ty Cobb's all-time career hit record of 4,191 in 1985.
The "Ty-breaker", which both Rose and baseball historians have awaited for at least five years, came off the San Diego Padres' Eric Show. After taking a fast ball high, fouling a fast ball back, then skipping away from a breaking ball near his feet, the Reds' player-manager attacked a slider, erupting from his left-handed hitting crouch.
The ball streaked high over the shortstop's head on what has become Rose's patented hit since he reached age 40: a hard opposite-field single to left-center. The historic hit was clean, hard and convincing -- worthy of generations of television replays.
