Hot corner

September 28, 1998

Quote: "It was awesome. It was pretty neat. You don't like guys who get hits against your team, but that was pretty special to see that." -- Indians' Jim Thome on Paul Molitor's 3,318th and 3,319th career hits, probably the last of the Twin's 21-year career.

It's a fact: Yankees attendance yesterday was 49,609, giving them a team-record total of 2.949,734. Owner George Steinbrenner said the team needed to draw 3 million for him to consider keeping the franchise in the Bronx.

Who's hot: The White Sox's Albert Belle set team records with 49 home runs, 48 doubles, 153 RBIs, 401 total bases and 100 extra-base hits.

Who's not: Finishing 65-97, the Tigers have had five straight losing seasons for the first time.
