Jimmy Rollins (2007)

Willie Wilson (1980)

Ichiro Suzuki (2004)

Juan Samuel (1984)

Partcipating in the majority of their teams games and usually batting towards the top of the order, helped these four players become the only ones in the Majors to reach 700 At-Bats (AB) in a single season. 

 Rollins the first player to get 200+ Hits, 20+ Triples, 30+ Home Runs, and steal 30+ Bases in a season and was the MVP that year.

 Wilson earned the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger Awards in that campaign and led the League in Runs Scored, Hits, and Triples.

 Suzuki established the record for hits in a season (262) and won the batting title.

 Samuel led the League in triples that year and had the most stolen bases among rookies.

 Pete Rose, the all-time leader in At-Bats (14,053), had 17 seasons with 600+ AB in his 24-year career.
