As of this hot minute, Dirt in the Skirt has hit 3,000 views. Holy shit. In honor of this (mostly personal) milestone, I thought I’d list some other badass 3,000’s. These 3,000’s make my 3,000 look laughable, but self-deprecation is one of my strong suits, so that’s what’s happening.
3,000 Major League Hits
-Only 28 players have been able to swing themselves to this number, with Derek Jeter most recently joining the party in July of this year.
3,000 Strikeouts Club
-16 pitchers have reached 3,000 strikeouts, with Walter Johnson as the first to record 3,000 all the way back in 1923. Johnson held that record by himself until Bob Gibson reached the mark in 1974. The newest 3,000 Strikeouts Club member is John Smoltz, who reached the milestone in 2008.
NFL Players with 1 or More 3000 Yard Passing Season
-37, including names like Brady, Brees, Favre, Manning, other Manning, Hasselbeck, Kitna, Roethlisberger, Rivers, and Warner… to name a few.
Most seasons with 3000+ yards
-The number is 18, and the man who owns the record is Brett Favre. He did this over a period of time between 1992 and 2009.
I know I’ve ripped on him, but to make it even more impressive…
Most consecutive seasons with 3000+ yards
-Again, the number is 18, and the man is Brett Favre. He did it EVERY YEAR from 1992 to 2009.
First NFL quarterback to throw 3000 pass completions
-Fran Tarkenton. Mr. Tarkenton completed number 3,000 in 1976 at the helm of the Vikings offense. When he retired, Tarkenton had 3,686 completions to his name.
