First glance:








What happened to this?


I think so.


3,000, more than any other number in a sport driven by its numbers, suggests sustained excellence at the plate.


Using perhaps 500 at-bats in a season as a base, a player would have to average 167 hits per season over an 18-year career, leading to a career average of .333. Just getting to play enough to get that many hits is at least suggestive of greatness.


According to Baseball Reference, there have been about 17,700 players in major league history.

28 have reached 3,000 career hits.
