Ken Griffey Sr. did it in my league. He finished with 3256. Hal Chase has 2993 at age 41, but he's slowed to a crawl. Got three hits in 1922. Can't see myself putting either one in the HoF. I'm a WAR/JAWS guy, and Griffey Sr., while close to my threshold, isn't there for me despite easily passing 3000 hits. Same thing for Kingman and his 500 HR.
