Congratulations, Freddie!

Los Angeles Dodgers superstar Freddie Freeman is now a member of the prestigious 2,000-hit club.

Joining the ranks Sunday afternoon, Freeman did so after hitting an RBI double in the eighth inning of Los Angeles’ 6-5 defeat to the Houston Astros at Dodger Stadium. Freeman is only the sixth active player with at least 2,000 career hits.

The five other active MLB players with at least 2,000 hits are Miguel Cabrera, Andrew McCutchen, Nelson Cruz, Joey Votto and Elvis Andrus. The next closest player in the league to potentially join the 2,000-hit club is Astros superstar Jose Altuve, who is only 39 hits away from doing so.

Adding to the legendary status of Freeman, he’s also one of only 98 players in the entire history of Major League Baseball to tally each 2,000 hits and 300 home runs in a career. Among active players, Freeman is one of four to pull off that feat, joining Cabrera, Cruz and Votto.
