He is followed by Albert Pujols (3,967), Barry Bonds (3,847), and Trammell Crowne (3,809). At the time of his death in October 2015, Hank Aaron still held the major league record with 5,957 hits.
During his career, Rose made the All-Star Game 11 times and won the MVP Award in 1975. He also led the league in hits three times. In 2001, he was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
In 2004, the Baseball Writers' Association of America voted Rose into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. He is now one of only two players (Aaron) to be elected by both the BBWAA and the Veterans Committee (which selects the other player).
Rose's career batting average is.310. He hit over.300 six times during his career. Five of those seasons were when he played first base. During World War II, when many ballplayers went to war, Rose helped lead the Cincinnati Reds to a Western Division title and made the All-Star Game.
Pete Rose: With 3,358 hits, Pete Rose holds the record for most hits in Cincinnati Reds franchise history. The all-time hit leader was selected as the ninth player to join the 500 Home Run Club.
Pete Rose is a great hitter and a good role model because he's working hard to get back into baseball. When he makes it into a game, he'll be able to help any team that hires him. He had several stints in the minors before finally being released by the Reds in 1981. But even though he wasn't playing anymore, Pete didn't quit on his team or himself. He spent the next three years researching the history of the league and learning about baseball operations from the best coaches in the world. When he returned in 1984, he was ready to play again. And when he got a call from the manager, who knew what kind of talent Pete could be helping out of retirement, he once again went straight into the lineup without missing a beat.
In conclusion, Pete Rose is the greatest hitter in Cincinnati Reds history due to his dedication and work ethic. He's one of the few players who can say they have enough games at the major league level to qualify as a career hitter.
Pete Rose: As of October 2020, this statistic shows the MLB all-time games played leaders. Pete Rose has the most games played in Major League Baseball history, at 3,562. He is also one of four players who have hit into as many double plays in their careers (858). The other three are Al Kaline (964), Joe DiMaggio (1001), and George Foster (1033).
Rose entered the league in 1961 with the Cincinnati Reds. He was immediately given a job by manager Dave Bristol to fill in for an injured player - and from then on he never left the team. Rose played in every game that season until July 4 when he got a call up to the majors. In 62 career games at the time, he had 42 hits including 14 doubles, 5 triples, and 1 home run. He ended up playing in 157 games that year, hitting.272 with 26 homers and 102 RBIs.
In 1962, Rose started out slowly but finished strong, finishing second in MVP voting behind Bob Gibson of the St. Louis Cardinals. In 63 games, he had 44 hits including 13 doubles, 5 triples, and 2 home runs. He ended up playing in 154 games that year, hitting.292 with 27 homers and 101 RBIs.
Ichiro Suzuki (Japan) with the Seattle Mariners from 2001 to 2010 and Pete Rose (USA) with the Cincinnati Reds and Philadelphia Phillies from 1965-66, 1968-70, 1973, 1975-77, and 1979 have the most seasons with 200 hits in a big league baseball career. They both played during an era when there were few defensive positions, so even though they did not get to play every day, they still got to touch everything on the field.
Suzuki finished his career with 211 hits in Japan, and Rose is currently second with 881 hits. Only Ty Cobb (275) and Rogers Hornsby (230) have more 200-hit seasons than these two legendary players.
Other notable players who have had 200-hit seasons include Barry Bonds (251), Willie Mays (220), Joe DiMaggio (199), and Alex Rodriguez (198).
In conclusion, Ichiro Suzuki and Pete Rose are the only two players who have had more than one 200-hit season in their careers.
With 14,053 at-bats, Pete Rose is the all-time leader. Rose is also the first player in Major League Baseball history to have more than 13,000 or 14,000 at bats. Only 29 players in MLB history have accumulated 10,000 career at bats, with Albert Pujols being the only one still active.
The next highest total of at-bats by a player is 1,847, which is held by Barry Bonds. Bonds' record will likely be broken this season by Alex Rodriguez with a possible final game played in September 2016 if he finishes his contract with the New York Yankees.
In fact, no player has ever reached 1,900 at-bats in a season; the closest anyone has come is 1,894 in 2007 when José Guillén of the Cleveland Indians led the league with 231 games played.
Bonds' teammate on the San Francisco Giants, Willie Mays, is second on the list with 12,549 at-bats. It's important to note that many of Mays' at-bats came before 1964 when batting averages were lower and it's possible that he would rank higher today.
It's also worth mentioning that some players have been listed as having 10,000 career at-bats even though they never played an official game in the Major Leagues.
