  2. ^ Major League Baseball lists Cobb's hit total at 4,191, although some independent baseball historians have revised the total to 4,189 because of double-counting a 2-hit day.
  3. ^ Cap Anson's hit amounts are different depending on source and what hits are included in various leagues he played in. His total varies from 2,995 to 3,435. MLB.com credits him with 3,011. Major League Baseball credits him with 3,081 hits, which is verified by Elias Sports Bureau. Baseball-Reference.com credits him with 3,435.
