End of Season Milestones

Milestones! The Rockies reached quite a few individual milestones this year including Todd Helton's 2000th hit and 500th double. Aaron Cook becoming the winningist pitcher in Rockies history. But what other individual milestones were reached. At the beginning of the year I had this fanpost about the milestones players in 2009 were approaching. Now that the season is over I thought I would give the follow up on the original. Below is a table recording the date and event that each player achieved a certain milestone. An "x" indicates the player did not achieve the milestone this year.

If I missed any of the large ones please let me know. Thanks for a great season and I hope we can have more individual accomplishments next year (to go along with more great team accomplishments).
