On Saturday, July 9th, 2011, Yankees star Derek Jeter took Rays pitcher David Price deep into the left field stands, cementing his legacy and etching his name in baseball history.

Jeter became the 28th hitter in history to achieve the monumental accomplishment of 3,000 hits, joining the likes of Roberto Clemente, Ricky Henderson, and Willie Mays.

We won't see another player enter the ranks of the 3,000 hits club this year, but many veterans and fearsome hitters in their own rights could very possibly see hit 3,000 in the next few years. Others, like Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols, are still young but have very good shots at reaching the milestone.

To achieve 3,000 hits, you can't just have a few good seasons. You have to maintain production for well over a decade, and establish yourself as a valuable-enough player that teams will still sign you into your mid-30's, involving both longevity and health. 

Without further ado, let's take a look at 15 players who could very well reach 3,000 hits in their major league career.
