The American professional baseball first baseman, Paul Goldschmidt nailed it again! This time Paul records his 1,000th hit in the major.
Diamondbacks Paul turned 30 on 10th of this month and on 13th, the sportsperson recorded his 1,000th career hit in the majors. Goldschmidt played against the Rockies with 998 adding a double to the center field in the third innings of German Marquez to hit the glory.
What was even more good to witness that the baseball star did it after an elbow injury which he faced.
“It’s not constant or anything”, Goldschmidt said, “Sometimes there’s some pain, but nothing that I haven’t been playing with. I don’t really feel it during the game, when it’s already warmed up and you’re out there, whether that’s the adrenaline or the intensity of the game. I can feel it in the morning and stuff, being a little sore or whatever — I don’t even know if that’s the right word to describe it. Once it gets warmed up it’s fine and I’m good to go.”
However, Goldschmidth was pretty confident that he could play and would do good. Inspite of the elbow injury, the baseball player did it all and it was stunning.
Goldschmidth and Luis Gonzalez are the only players in baseball history to have 1,000 hits listed to their names. But then the franchise was set up only in 1998 so that doesn’t make it quiet surprising either.
After the double, Goldschmidth improved his slash line to .310/.418/.590 with 34 home runs, 112 RBI, 104 runs scored, and seven stolen bases in 601 plate appearances. Well he seems to remain in the midst of all complexities in the NL MVP Award race. Let’s hope for the best!
