Chipper Jones In Rare Company With 1000+ Extra-base Hits, 1000+ Wallks And A .300+ AVG

The list is below. Only 17 players have dones this and the numbers are only through 2011. Jones still has a .304 lifetime AVG. AROD is down to .301. All 12 of the eligible players on this list are in the Hall of Fame. The non-eligibles are in red. To be on this list you need power, patience and the ability to hit for average.

Wow, this is pretty awesome. Goes along with something I noticed a while back -- Chipper's probably going to retire with a .300/.400/.500 batting line... and everybody who's done that with more than 4000 PA's (I think it was 4k but it might've been 5k or 6k?), has become a HOFer.
