CLIPS' BROWN AMASSES 3500TH CAREER HIT

Calgary DH and all-time SIMBL hit king Matthew Brown (above) connects on his 3500th career SIMBL hit in 2039 SIM 8. Brown is currently only one of three players in the SIMBL's 35-season history to collect 3000 career hits joining Asheville's Julian Winfield and SIMBL Hall Of Famer Carlos Molina.

Calgary Clippers mainstay Matthew Brown, the SIMBL's all-time hits king, added to his automatic SIMBL Hall Of Fame resume in 2039 SIM 8 by achieving his 3500th career hit.

Brown, drafted in the sixth round of the live part of the 2019 SIMBL New File Era Inaugural Draft, is one of only three players in the SIMBL's 35-season history to achieve 3000 career hits and one of only 11 players to achieve 2500 career hits.  Brown is in his 21st season spending 16.5 with the Clippers, four seasons with Westbury, one season with Knoxville and a half a season with Cleveland.  The 39 year-old holds the single-season batting average record after hitting .367 with the Cannons in 2034.

Brown is also the SIMBL's all-time stolen base king currently swiping an amazing 1629 career bases.  He has posted a SIMBL-record six 100+ stolen base seasons, nine 90+ seasons, ten 80+ seasons and thirteen 70+ stolen base seasons in his career.

A career .292 hitter, Brown has hit .300+ five times and .290+ eight seasons in his career. Brown currently also has 354 career home runs and 1451 career RBI with a career OPS of .784.  He leads the SIMBL in several all-time offensive categories.

Among the most decorated players in league history, 'The Bandit' has made the All-Star team eleven times and is a six-time Union League Gold Glove winner having spent his entire career, save one season in Knoxville, in the UL.

The nearest current player who has any outside chance at sniffing Brown's incredible record is Asheville's 31 year-old center fielder Akiro Hikaru.  The 31 year-old former #5 overall pick of the 2024 SIMBL Draft is in his 12th full season, 13th overall, and currently has 2055 career hits spending his first six seasons with the Tampa Bay Silverbacks before being traded in a cost-cutting move to the San Diego Warewolves where he played five seasons helping the 'Wolves to the 2033 SIMBL championship. Hikaru signed a four-year $76,000,000 deal with the Asheville Smokies prior to the 2038 season and is in his second season with the Smokies.  Hikaru is a career .302 hitter, the 2028 SL Rookie Of The Year and an 8-time All-Star and 2-time Gold Glove winner and came in 2nd in the 2034 SL MVP voting.
