On this day in 1996, Eddie Murray became the third player in major league history to have 500 home runs and 3,000 hits.  He did it in the bottom of the 7th at Camden Yards.

Murray was very quiet and did his talking on the field:  .287 average, 504 HR & 1,917 RBI.     He also did it as a switch hitter and played excellent defense at first base.

He was clearly one of the key parts of those Orioles teams that won 2 AL pennants and the 1983 World Series.    In fact, Murray hit 2 HR in game 5 to back Scott McGregor's pitching and win the Series.
