Derek Jeter moves into eighth place on all-time hits list
Yankee captain Derek Jeter moved into eighth place on the all-time hits list with two singles on Sunday.
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter moved into sole possesion of eighth place on the all-time hits list on Sunday. He singled in the third inning to tie Paul Molitori, then he singled again in the fourth to jump over him.
Here is the all-time hit list at the moment:
- Pete Rose - 4,256 hits
- Ty Cobb - 4,189
- Hank Aaron - 3,771
- Stan Musial - 3,630
- Tris Speaker - 3,514
- Honus Wagner - 3,420
- Carl Yastrzemski - 3,419
- Derek Jeter - 3,320
- Paul Molitor - 3,319
- Eddie Collins - 3,315
With a great season, Jeter could jump Tris Speaker to take over fifth place all-time. Jeter is retiring after the season and looks likely to call it a career with at least the sixth most hits in baseball history. That is something else.
Coming into Sunday's game, Jeter was 2-for-11 with four walks on the season. Had he not missed almost all of 2013 with leg and ankle problems, he'd have a chance to finish his career as high as third place on the all-time hits list.
Cap Anson, who played during the 1800s, retired with 3,435 career hits, but pre-1900 hit totals are not recognized due to the unreliability of the information.
