Will never forget his 3000th hit, it came against the Flubs on May 13th 1958. I didn't go to school that day because I had a bad cold, anyway I watched the game on WGN, Stan wanted to get #3000 at home and did not start the game but he did pinch hit in the 6th inning and hit a line drive for a double off the wagon gate in leftcenter at Wrigley off Moe Drabowsky.
