Andrew McCutchen has been around for quite some time.
He made his Major League debut with the Pittsburgh Pirates back in 2009 and has accomplished a lot over the course of his career.
On Sunday, the veteran slugger added another important milestone to the list, as he picked up his 2,000th career hit during the Pirates series finale against the New York Mets.
Pittsburgh won 2-1 and secured a series win, but the story of the game was the veteran McCutchen and his milestone.
On Twitter, MLB posted a cool graphic to celebrate McCutchen’s accomplishment while also congratulating him on joining the 2,000-hit club.

McCutchen has certainly accomplished a lot during his career.
He helped briefly guide the Pirates back to prominence in 2013, earning MVP honors in the National League after the team had earned their first winning season in over two decades.
The 36-year-old also has a Gold Glove, four Silver Slugger Awards, and five All-Star nods to his name.
Better yet, McCutchen got a chance to celebrate his milestone in front of the fans in Pittsburgh.
The veteran outfielder was with the team until 2018 when he was traded to the San Francisco Giants.
He also made brief stops with the New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies, and Milwaukee Brewers before returning to Pittsburgh.
But now that he’s back with the Pirates, the fans in Pittsburgh are getting the chance to see him break records and achieve individual milestones as his career winds down.
This season, the veteran outfielder is hitting .265 with eight home runs.NEXT: Today Marks An Important Pirates Anniversary
