Everybody's Got A Record: John Paciorek Editon

**In this series we strive to prove the universal truth that every baseball player holds some kind of record.**


Believe it or not there are only about 20 players to have a 1.000 batting average over the course of their career.  Nearly all of those players have one at-bat and one hit [often a pinch hit opportunity]...some where lucky enough to go two for two in their brief career.  John Paciorek had five at-bats in his one game in the majors [which was the last game of the 1963 season] smacking three hits and drawing two walks.  He ended his career with a perfect 1.000 and is the only player to do that while having three hits.  


I found this card in my local LCS in Topeka for $4.00.

I totally eBayed for this card when I got the base card. Had to have an autograph of the best 1.000 hitter ever.
