All-Time Hit Leaders for Each MLB Team
One of the fundamental aspects of the game of baseball is to hit the ball. Without a hit, it is often difficult to win the game. Of course there are other ways to get on base such as a base on balls or a hit by pitch, but those are just meager technicalities.
In this day and age, players tend to move on from team to team every few years either to chase an elusive World Series Championship or for that high-dollar contract. No other player than Ty Cobb of the Detroit Tigers has stuck around with the same team to collect 3,902 hits.
