The most unbreakable records in MLB history: 6,856 total bases

Hank Aaron was one of the best players to get on base. No matter the circumstances, more times than not, his team could depend on him to make the best of his plate appearances.

By the time he wrapped up his Hall of Fame career, Aaron managed to collect 6,856 total bases, an all-time record. Stan Musial and Willie Mays both cracked through the 6,000 barrier but neither man could overtake Aaron for the lead.

While Aaron is enjoying his time sitting at the top of the charts, he’s keeping a close eye on Albert Pujols. Currently, the future first ballot Hall of Famer has just a shade over 6,000, the only active player to do so. It’s unlikely, however, that Pujols has enough time in the majors to surpass Aaron as he’s well into his early 40s.

Throughout his career, Aaron’s name continually pops up on the all-time leaderboards in several statistics. He’s ranked number seven all-time in Wins Above Replacement with 143.1, third in games played with 3,298, and fourth in runs scored with 2,174.

Although several of his records have been broken, he’ll sit at the top of the total bases charts for an incredibly long time.
