Passing Carew on the all - time hit list has extra significance because it makes Ichiro the all - time hits leader among foreign - born players . Adrian Beltre will likely join this club in the next month or so and Albert Pujols should get there in 2018.

Adrian Beltre keeps climbing the all-time leaderboards.

When the Texas Rangers third baseman lined a fourth-inning double against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night, he broke a tie with Ichiro Suzuki for most all-time hits by a player born outside the United States.

It was the 3,090th hit of Beltre's career, good for 22nd-most in MLB history all on his own. He trails legendary slugger Dave Winfield by 20 hits for 21st on the list, and he'll need only five more to catch Alex Rodriguez's career tally of 3,115.
