MOST CAREER HITS: 4,256
PETE ROSE
Pete Rose's career hits record is likely to stand for quite a while. Derek Jeter, who is the closest active player to the record, is still more than 1,300 hits away. For a player to break it, he'd have to get about 195 hits a year for 22 seasons. Good luck! (Credit: AP file)
