July 23, 1979 George Brett gets his 1,000th career hit at home with the fountains of Kansas City. George Brett finished the ‘79 season with 42 triples, 20 doubles, and 23 homers. What’s this have to do with today? Absolutely nothing other than the fact that I’m attending a Royals’ game tonight at Kauffman Stadium while I visit this fine state of Missouri.
