Times on Base

Here, from Baseball-reference, is a list of the top 11 hitters in terms of times getting on base in their career (years played in parentheses, and the + denotes Hall of Famers):

1. Pete Rose (24) 5929
2. Barry Bonds (22) 5599
3. Ty Cobb+ (24) 5532
4. Rickey Henderson+ (25) 5343
5. Carl Yastrzemski+ (23) 5304
6. Stan Musial+ (22) 5282
7. Hank Aaron+ (23) 5205
8. Tris Speaker+ (22) 4998
9. Babe Ruth+ (22) 4978
10. Eddie Collins+ (25) 4891
11. Willie Mays+ (22) 4791

It is a shame that the two leaders aren’t in the Hall. It’s also surprising that Rose is on top by more than 300-an entire season-even though he’s no higher than 79th for times on base in a single season.
