Which Batter Collected 2297 RBIs?

2297 rbis

Hank Aaron collected 2297 RBIs during his career, more than any other player in Major League Baseball history.

Aaron most famously broke Babe Ruth’s all-time home run record when he smacked number 715 in 1974, but not all of those long ball were solo shots.

Not by a long shot, in fact.

Aaron was one of the most complete players in the game during a 23-year-career spent with the Milwaukee and Atlanta Braves (21 seasons) and the Milwaukee Brewers (2 seasons), winning three Gold Gloves, a National League MVP award, two batting titles, and four home run crowns while appearing in a whopping 25 All-Star Games.

All of those accomplishments unsurprisingly landed Aaron in the Hall of Fame on his first ballot in 1982.

But, while most of his other records have since been surpassed (including the home run mark, where Barry Bonds holds a 762-to-755 advantage over Aaron), the RBI tally still belongs to Hank.

Babe Ruth is second, with 2214, and Albert Pujols stands in third as of mid-May 2022, with just over 2150 ribbies.

Aaron also still holds the all-time record for total bases, checking in at 6856, more than 700 in front of runner-up Stan Musial. Pujols tops active players (in 2022), about 800 behind Aaron.
