2,722 hits note

Craig Biggio's 2722 hits, as of today, include 233 hits in games when he also got hit by a pitch. Lou Gehrig was only hit by a pitch 45 times so for his 2721 hits to include that many hits in games when he got plunked, he would have had to average 5.2 hits in every game he got plunked - and even more if he had any 2 plunk games in there.
While I can't prove that 233 hits in games when a player also was hit by a pitch is any kind of record, I can offer these two comparisons: Pete Rose only recorded 106 hits in games when he was hit by a pitch, and Don Baylor had 201 hits in games when he was plunked.
