Top 25 in Slugging and number 870 Pete Rose.

Pete Rose was number one in PA, Times on Base, AB, Hits, 1B.  Oh, and number one in outs.  Also:
- 2B: 2
- TB: 7

So being number 7 in Total Bases I wondered where Rose was in Slugging (TB/AB).

3,000 PA:

3,000 PA seems rather low.  What if we give Rose a break and look at the top 25 in TB (at least 4,850) and sort by SLG.  Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio drop out.

Rose is dead last, well behind another non home run hitter: Derek Jeter.  Rose hit 160 HR.  Cobb and Speaker each hit 117.  Rose past Cobb for most hits but Cobb's Slugging was more than 100 points higher.
