Phillies third baseman Placido Polanco needs just one hit to join that select group.
"It means a lot," he said. "I've been lucky enough to have played since 1998. I've played in good organizations. It means a lot and maybe someday I'll look back at all the hits and really appreciate it."
Polanco didn't start Sunday against the Padres but as a pinch-hitter in the seventh, he ripped a line drive right at third baseman James Darnell. He'll try again Monday night against the Astros. And yes, he's already picked out the spot in his Miami home to display the baseball.
