"Roberto Clemente 3000th Hit 9/30/72"

I sent a request to Wayne Garrett asking him to tell the story on a baseball about his memory of Roberto Clemente's 3000th hit and this is what I got:

"In Pittsburgh on 9-30-'72 Roberto hit a double off Jon Matlack to get"
"his 3000th hit. I wittness [sic] the event and playing 3rd base. Roberto was one of the best hitters to ever play this game."
"Roberto also had good speed & great throwing arm. A great asset to MLB and to"
"the Hall of Fame."
