Which Active MLB Player Has the Most Hits?

Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia embraces Albert Pujols after Pujols hit a single off Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Mike Leake for his 3,000th career hit in the fifth inning of a baseball game Friday Ma

Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia embraces Albert Pujols after Pujols hit a single off Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Mike Leake for his 3,000th career hit in the fifth inning of a baseball game Friday Ma

It was a historic night for the legendary slugger, who officially joined the 3,000-hit club with a fifth-inning single off Mike Leake.

Pujols is the second player to collect his 3,000th hit in Seattle after Rafael Palmeiro's double in 2005 at Safeco Field.

Quality newspaper work, that is. One team that has had a heavy microscope on it is the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. "It just happened tonight", Pujols said.

If he were to match last year's total of 143 hits, he will move past the likes of Lou Brock, Rod Carew, and Craig Biggio, with an outside chance of topping Dave Winfield at 3,110 or Alex Rodriguez at 3,115 before season's end. As of Wednesday, May 2, Pujols sits at 2,998 career hits. I hit a long fly ball, and they caught it right at the wall.

"Three-thousand hits is a lot".

Pulling Out Of Iran Deal Will Not Hurt N. Korea Talks
Netanyahu said he is certain that Trump will "do the right thing" in deciding whether to stay in the nuclear deal. And the files also show that Iran's intent was to revive the nuclear weapons program at a later date, he said.

Ichiro Suzuki reached 3,000 hits in 2016 and also accomplished it on the road.

Cabrera is sitting on 2,666 hits, while Cano has registered 2,408 with plenty more to come, in his estimation. After Cabrera is Robinson Cano, almost 600 hits shy of the mark.

In his sixth attempt to join the exclusive list after getting to 2,999 career hits, Pujols got just enough of Mike Leake's pitch to find the outfield grass and add another accolade to a likely Hall of Fame career. That's not unusual for members of the 3,000-hit club, but he's avoided that while hitting for power and playing in the highest-strikeout era in major league history.

Pujols became the second Dominican to reach the mark after Beltre.

"If you had told me 17 years ago when I was drafted by the Cardinals that I would have had a career like this, I would have laughed at you in the face", Pujols said, per USA Today's Bob Nightengale. Two-way Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani's arrival as the Angels' primary DH has put Pujols in the field, where he remains a capable defender.
