In 1925,Collins became just the sixth person to join the 3,000 hit club –and the last for the next 17 seasons. His 47 career home runs are the fewest of anyone in it.

In Major League Baseball,the 300-win club is the group of pitchers who have won 300 or more games. Twenty-four pitchers have reached this milestone. This list does not include Bobby Mathews who won 297 in the major leagues plus several more in 1869 and 1870 before the major leagues were established in 1871. The San Francisco Giants are the only franchise to see four players reach 300 wins while on their roster:Tim Keefe in the Players' League,Christy Mathewson and Mickey Welch while the team was in New York,and most recently Randy Johnson. Early in the history of professional baseball,many of the rules favored the pitcher over the batter;the distance pitchers threw to home plate was shorter than today,and pitchers were able to use foreign substances to alter the direction of the ball. Moreover,pitchers started games far more frequently than modern pitchers do;in the second half of the 1884 season Old Hoss Radbourne started every other game. The first player to win 300 games was Pud Galvin in 1888. Seven pitchers recorded all or the majority of their career wins in the 19th century:Galvin,Cy Young,Kid Nichols,Keefe,John Clarkson,Charles Radbourn,and Welch. Four more pitchers joined the club in the first quarter of the 20th century:Mathewson,Walter Johnson,Eddie Plank,and Grover Cleveland Alexander. Young is the all-time leader in wins with 511,a mark that is considered unbreakable. If a modern-day pitcher won 20 games per season for 25 seasons,he would still be 11 games short of Young's mark.
