Who will be next to 3000 hits and when they'll get there

Los Angeles Angels' Albert Pujols celebrates with Mike Trout between the top and bottom of the fifth inning after Pujols singled for his 3,000th career hit against the Seattle Mariners in a baseball game Friday Who will be next to 3000 hits and when they'll get there
Gerardo Duncan | 13 May, 2018, 01:09

Pujols joined Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Alex Rodriguez as the fourth player in baseball history with 3,000 hits and 600 homers. He's been OK after a slow start to the season, hitting.274 with five homers and 16 RBI in his last 26 games. After his age-30 season in 2010, Pujols had already delivered 1,900 hits, which was good for the 13th-highest total in baseball history reached by that age.

"Obviously, I wanted to do it here", Pujols said. "The Machine" is one of the greatest hitters all time and will without-a-doubt be a first-ballot Hall of Famer. His 308 intentional walks are the second most all-time and while he is just the second player all-time to get 300 free passes, he will certainly not catch up to the leader, Barry Bonds, who was walked intentionally an insane 688 times.

Pujols had 32 hits off three-time All-Star Roy Oswalt, his most against any pitcher, ahead of Aaron Harang (27) and Ben Sheets (26). "Nothing would be more special than in September and October and playing in the playoffs and bringing a championship back to the city of Anaheim". That can't be said for Pujols however, as the 13th round draft pick had a season to remember.

A victory was the most fitting way for Pujols' teammates to honour him.

Twins 6, White Sox 4: Third baseman Eduardo Escobar ripped two solo home runs and doubled in a third run, and Brian Dozier and Logan Morrison added solo homers as Minnesota scored early and beat Chicago at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago. Yuli Gurriel had four hits and drove in three runs for Houston. Carew and Pujols are the only players to record their 3,000th hit with the Angels.

"I was struggling and just got exhausted and fed up with baseball", Carew said. There really isn't much for me to say here without getting to statistical. Growing up surrounded by cars, I knew that whatever I did as an adult, it had to involve them.

He left the Cardinals after the 2011 season and signed a 10-year, $240-million contract with the Angels.

Pujols has the 21st best WAR of all time, and the second-best WAR for any first basemen ever, only behind Lou Gehrig.

Seattle Mariners' Mike Zunino, left, is cheered by Dee Gordon after Zunino's two-run home run against the Los Angeles Angels during the eighth inning of a baseball game Saturday, May 5, 2018, in Seattle. It also isn't just because he has played 18 years in the league, which is an accomplishment in and of itself, he also has the second-best top-seven years. He has hits against every big-league team and in all but one big-league stadium - the new place in Atlanta, where he has never played.

Pujols has had a remarkably consistent career.
