Who has the most hits in MLB, and how did he hit?
- Anonymous1 decade agoFavorite Answer
Pete Rose holds the career hit record with 4,256. He was a switch hitting, hard groundball/line drive hitter. He bragged when he was a rookie in 1963 that he would become MLB's first $100,000 a year singles hitter. He made good on that boast.

Pete Rose hit #4193 in Cincinnati back in 1985 while he was playing for the Reds to break the previous record of 4192. I'm not sure how many more hits he got after that. Pete was "Rookie of the Year" back in 1963 when he started his career with the Reds. He could swing a bat both right and left handed. He also invented the "Head First slide" diving for the plateSource(s): Reds fan since I was a kid

Pete Rose most certainly did not invent the headfirst slide; Billy Hamilton was doing it in the 1880s. Rose is the correct answer to the question, though.
