Career highlights and awards

MLB records

  • 4,256 career hits
  • 3,215 career singles
  • 3,562 career games played
  • 14,053 career at-bats
  • 15,890 career plate appearances

Just my 2 cents, but since Pete was banned for life from baseball, he should be told that after he dies he’ll be eligible for induction to the Hall of Fame. I have a serious issue with “life” being in perpetuity. And for that matter, Shoeless Joe Jackson should be in the Hall too!
