TRB is Sabermetrics' Answer to H, BA

(That's how they talk at the Sloan Analytics Conference. Like they don't have moment to spare.)

Everyone knows Pete Rose is the all-time Hit King™, with 4,256 career base hits. Just as everyone (except Wikipedia) knows that Ty Cobb was the previous record holder, with 4,189 safeties. But hits are only one of, like, a thousand ways of reaching base, along with walks, hit-by-pitch, and when the ball gets lodged in the umpire's mask. Who leads in all the ways a player can reach first base?

Beyond the Box Score's Lee Trocinski has the answer, and there's one active player among the career leaders in Times Reaching Base. He also found the top single-season performances and the longest TRB streaks. Check it out.
