Boston’s Janmaat Joins 1600 Hits Club

Boston Brawlers veteran 1B-man Barry ‘Hulk’ Janmaat, the 37-year old Dutchman with over 20 years in the Bull League, has added his name to the exclusive 1600+ Hits club, in his 1-for-4 contribution against the New York Minutemen today.

Janmaat is now #3 on the All Time Hits list, behind Hall of Famer Carl Simms (1,655) and Dave Norman (1,615), who retired last year. His other numbers are very Hall of Fame worthy, with a career average of .308, 5,190 at-bats, and 323 doubles.

Close behind Janmaat is fellow Brawler Narushi Ohata, just 7 hits shy of the 1,600 mark.
