Offseason[edit]

Regular season[edit]

  • Cal Ripken, Jr.'s 1999 season ended early due to injury when he was only 9 hits away from joining the 3000 hit club. He finally achieved the milestone early in the 2000 season when he singled off reliever Héctor Carrasco in a game against the Minnesota Twins on April 15, 2000 in the Metrodome. Ripken had a good night at the plate, getting three hits, the third of which was the milestone. [1] The Twins distributed a commemorative certificate to the fans as they left the Metrodome after the game.
  • On October 1, 2000, Albert Belle hit a home run in the last at-bat of his career.[4]
