Adrian Gonzalez of the Los Angeles Dodgers now has more hits than any other Mexican player in MLB. The first baseman achieved this historic milestone in the team's most recent game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Vinicio Castilla, known widely as Vinny Castilla, was the player Gonzalez passed to achieve this record. Gonzalez played for Mexico in the 2009 World Baseball Classic under the guidance of Castilla, who served as the team's manager. Now Gonzalez has surpassed his former mentor to write his own page in the history books.
