Much like Barry Bonds’ career home run record, this is another that still resonates in the major league community. Love or hate Rose, he was a phenomenal hitter. It was to the point where he made it look easy. Rose and Ty Cobb are the only players to reach 4,000 hits. Meanwhile, the closest active player hits-wise to Rose is Freddie Freeman with 2,114 hits (as of March 1, 2024).
