Congratulations, Albert Pujols!

Pujols

Albert Pujols became the 32nd major leaguer to collect 3000 hits in a career, joining an esteemed list of individuals such as Ty Cobb, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Ichiro Suzuki. He is one of only two active players in the 3000 hit club; Adrian Beltre reached the milestone last July. The only retired members of the 3000 hit club who are not in the Hall of Fame are Pete Rose (permanently banned), Derek Jeter (not eligible until 2020), Alex Rodriguez (not yet eligible and steroid issues), Ichiro Suzuki (not yet eligible), and Rafael Palmeiro (steroid issues).
