Top 5 Players To Ever Play The Game - #3

#4 - Pete Rose - The Hit King - "Charlie Hustle"

Having the most hits in MLB history, there was absolutely no way I could leave Pete Rose off the list. One of the best players to ever play the game (obviously since he's on my list) and he always played his hardest every day. He's on top of the list in 3 different categories: Games played, plate appearances, and of course, hits. For a good portion of his career, he either played all 162 games, or very close to that. He one rookie of the year in 1963 and batted .273, but that was only the start of a great career. 10 years later, he would win an MVP award, leading the league in 4 different categories. Although he was a fantastic player, he never hit more than 16 home runs in a season, and hit only 160 home runs in his career over 24 seasons. Pete Rose deserves to be in the hall of fame, even though he did bet on baseball. How can you keep one of the best players out of the hall of fame? Unlike Barry Bonds, their is no doubt that Rose should be in the hall.
