Default Record least likely to be broken

Here I have to sit with Cy Young's 511 wins. Even if a pitcher were to get 20 wins a season for 20 straight years, that only equates to 400. I don't think it will ever be touched.

The Ripken Streak

edit: Or how about winning 60 games in one season? More unlikely.

Crawford career triples record, Owen Wilson's single seeason Triples record and Johnny Vandemeers back to back no hitters (someone would have to get 3 in a row). I als oagree with the Cy Young 511.

I can't see anybody breaking Vander Meer's record of two consecutive no hit games, will probably take another 100 years just to tie it.

Records set in the modern era that most likely will never be touched, Ricky Henderson's career stolen bases. Ryan's Ks. Mike Marshall's 106 games pitched in a season. Bonds BB rocords. Gagne's streak without blowing a save may well be untachable.

All records involving steals of home. Most career WS records since it's unlikely anyone will ever get into enough WS games to challenge all the records set by the Yankees players of the 50s and 60s.

My place is full of valuable, worthless junk.

Discuss this often with my brother via email. He hates baseball and baseball cards (nobody is perfect) but is real into unbreakable records. Here are a few of my favorites ...

- (NHL) : Henri Richard - Member of 11 Stanley Cup winning teams

- (Olympics) : Eric Heiden winning all 5 speed skating events (all with Olympic Record times!) at the 1980 Winter Olympics

- (NCAA Basketball) : UCLAs 7 consecutive NCAA division I championships

- (NCAA Football) : Oklahomas 47 consecutive victories (1953-1957)

Mike

Mike, the record is not owned by Oklahoma now as Mount Union College has broken that record while winning 54 games in a row from 1996 - 1999, and then winning 55 straight when finally losing in 2003. Simply unreal!! I had a chance to see them beat my college team 65 or something to 7. This is something they regularly did.

Of course, if you mean Division I, then yes, you are right!

Well Fernando Tatis' two HR and eight RBIs in an inning would be difficult to beat, but the recoprd Id like to see fall is Bill Joyce's 1897 record of four triples in a game. Not likely tho.
