Jimmy Rollins is the Phillies all-time leader in at-bats, hits, doubles, power-speed, and outs made

Jimmy Rollins dethroned Mike Schmidt as the franchise (regular-season) hits leader, and what’s more impressive is that he amassed 2,306 hits in fewer seasons than it took Schmidt to get his 2,234.

Rollins spent 15 seasons with the Phillies and played 2,090 games, meaning he averaged 1.103 hits per game. By comparison, Schmidt averaged 0.92 hits per game, which is still insanely impressive.

During his many years in a Phillies uniform, Rollins also led MLB or the NL in several categories, including games played, at-bats, runs scored, triples, and stolen bases, in various seasons. Unsurprisingly, he’s now on the Hall of Fame ballot.
