1. Stan Musial

When you talk about the greatest hitter in history Stan “The Man” Musial is often discussed, and why wouldn’t he be?  Musial played his entire career with the St. Louis Cardinals where he smacked 3,630 Hits (amazingly with an even amount Home and Away), which is still enough for fourth all-time and is the most for any single team.  Musial was incredibly consistent for years and he was a six-time National League Hits leader with three second-place finishes and two third-place finishes and with that kind of production you can imagine there would be multiple Batting Titles.  That was in fact the case as he won that accolade in 1943, 1946, 1948, 1950, 1951, 1952 & 1957 and it took until his 18th season to see him bat under .300.
