3000 Hits Quiz

 

With Rafael Palmeiro joining the 3,000 hits club, it is a good time to examine the club of baseball's career hits leaders.

 

We'll start off with some easy ones:

3. Which member of the 3,000 hits club has the most career stolen bases?

 

4. Which member of the 3,000 hits club has the highest career average?

 

Now that you are four out of four (and if you aren't, quit now), lets move on to some team trivia:

 

5. Which of the following teams has never had a player get his 3,000th hit while playing for them Royals, Devil Rays, Twins, Yankees, or Brewers

 

6. Which team has had the most players get their 3,000th hit while playing in their uniform?

 

7. Which members of the 3,000 hits played for only one team their whole career?

 

8. Which player played for the most teams on his way to 3,000 hits?
