On May 4, 2018, California Angels slugger Albert Pujols collected a broken-bat single in the fifth inning at the Seattle Mariners’ Safeco Field. With the hit, Pujols not only gained admittance to baseball’s uber-exclusive 3000-hit club, but joined Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Alex Rodriguez as the only MLBers with 3000 hits and 600 homers.

MLB’S 3000-HIT CLUB

The 3000-hit mark was first reached in 1897 by Cap Anson, and didn’t officially become a “club” until he was joined 17 years later by fellow Hall of Famers Honus Wagner and Nap Lajoie. With Ichiro Suzuki recently hanging up his cleats, it leaves Pujols and Adrian Beltre as the only active players in the 3K club.

MLB's 3000-Point Club

Of the 32 players in the 3000-hit club, 19 entered on singles, 8 on doubles, 2 on triples (Ichiro Suzuki and Paul Molitor) and 2 on home runs (Wade Boggs and Derek Jeter). What follows is the entire list of players with 3000 or more hits, listed in ascending order by career hits.
