Notes[edit]

  1. ^ A player is considered inactive if he has announced his retirement or not played for a full season.
  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 including in various leagues he played in. His total varies from 2995-3435. MLB.com credits him with 3,011. Major League Baseball credits him with 3,081 hits which is verified by Elias Sports Bureau.
