Harold Baines deff played in the wrong time frame, he would have gotten 3000 hits had it not been for 3 years of strikes causing him to miss over 100 games.
Baines missed 124 team games because of strikes. Say he played 115 of those games. He didn't average over one hit per game in 1981, 1994, and 1995, so it's unlikely he would have 134 hits in those 124 team games to get to 3000.
