Rusty Staub is the only player with at least 500 hits for at least four teams.  Staub was known in Montreal as Le Grande Orange.  Hitting was his main baseball skill.

Here is a list of 17 players with 500 hits for at least three teams.  For each player the teams are listed in descending order of hits.  Data is derived from the Lahman database using Microsoft Access.

Keeler, Cramer and Damon have at least 600 hits for three teams.  Finley comes very close, missing by just five hits for his lowest number.  Rodriguez, Buckner and Evans are also pretty close.

Catcher Ferrell has the lowest numbers.  Molitor has by far the highest number for one team.

Reggie Jackson was the first player with at least 100 homers for three different teams.
