I know he doesn't meet the criteria here (yet), but just something to think about; Ichiro has over 4,000 professional hits between the Japanese league and the MLB.

Surprised not to see Griffey or DiMaggio on this list. I just looked up DiMaggio, and he isn't even close: 2,214. That gives some perspective to how hard it is to get to 3,000, and how long you have to play (and play at a high level).

If my quick check is correct, Jeter is the only player on this list who got his hits primarily with the Yankees. (Not that this is the only criteria of greatness, but) is it possible that playing with the Yankees inflates our opinions of certain greats of the past?

Just checked - Winfield got the highest number of his hits (42%) with the Yankees. I guess that counts as "primarily" too.

"Is it possible that playing with the Yankees inflates our opinions of certain greats of the past?" It's certainly possible. Then again, the fact that so many people hate the Yankees may also cause them to be more critical of their players, though this probably applies more to recent players than to ones from decades ago. It'll always be hard to judge the careers of players like DiMaggio, who lost what could have been huge seasons to the war.

DiMaggio only played 13 seasons, and missed 3 years in his prime serving in World War 2.

Just imagine too, that nearly 1/3 of these guys did this with only 154 games per season, which doesn't seem like a lot, but when you consider that after 10 years it's half a season shorter.

I have to believe that if not for military service, Ted Williams would be on this list. He lost 3 full seasons during WWII, and parts of some others in Korea.

I also have to believe that if they hadn't cheated their brains out using steroids, A-Roid and Palmeiro wouldn't be on this list.

A-rod would probably still be on the list. He was a prolific hitter throughout his career. He just wouldn't have hit as many homeruns.

Ted Williams was no base hit machine. The closest he came to leading the league in hits was second in 1949 to Dale Mitchell. He drew such huge numbers of walks that took the bat out of his hands.

He still would have gotten there if it wasn't for losing close to 5 years due to military service. He was 350 short and averaged 179 hits per 162 game season. More than likely he would have ended up with around 3300.

Only 154 games back then, but I agree, he would've easily surpassed it.

Amazing that Ruth doesn't make it despite being 10th all-time in batting average and playing for 22 seasons. Then you remember that the dude walked more than 2,000 times O_O

And also note that Ruth spent several years as a full-time pitcher who won 90 games.
