i just realized this.
derek jeter has 2213 hits so far in his career. he is 32 years old.
let’s say he plays until he’s 42 so he has 10 years left to play assuming no bad injuries. yeah i’m assuming that.
jeter has AVERAGED 208 hits per 162
ABs games in his career. wow.
so let’s be conservative and say he averages 190 hits a season for the next 10 years.
190 * 10 = 1900 new hits + 2213 hits already = 4113 hits career.
the all time hits leaders are:
that would put jeter in 3rd place on the list. what if he plays until he’s 45?
he’d have 4493 hits career making him number one on the list.
he’s going to be a legend.
