Padres history: Hit leaders by position

I was looking at Chase Headley's numbers and it occurred to me that he was likely the hit leader amongst Padres third basemen. I used the Baseball-Reference Play Index Split Finder tool to see the all-time team leaderboard in hits while in the lineup as a third baseman and, sure enough, Chase is in first place right ahead of Ken Caminiti, with 661 of his 864 career hits coming as a third baseman.

With that in mind, and suddenly curious how many of Tony Gwynn's 3,141 hits came as a right fielder, I looked up each position. I jotted down the leaders for each spot and then, in case this happens to be interesting to anyone else, threw together the following graphic:

If nothing else, it serves to further hammer home the point that when it comes to the San Diego Padres, there's Tony Gwynn and then, miles below, there's everyone else.
