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.

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.

Radbourne's 59 wins in a season. Anyone who can come close to that nowadays (or in future days) shouldn't have too much trouble winning 511+ over a career.

The ERA record is actually 0.96 by Dutch Leonard in 1914,and he pitched over 220 innings that year so its not cheap by any stretch.If you look at baseball-reference they have Tim Keefe at the lowest 0.87 i believe in 1880 but its in just over 100 innings.Mordecai Brown is also ahead of Gibson when he went 26-6 1.04 in 1906

Most unbreakable record has to be John Coleman who owns 4 unbreakable records.He was a good outfielder for Pittsburgh(appears in the old judge set) so its a little surprising that he holds these records.
Most losses in a season 48
Most hits allowed 772
Most runs allowed 510
most earned runs allowed 291

Talk about taking one for the team,he did it for a whole season!

Will anybody ever play an entire double-header at shortstop (all 18 innings) and not record a chance again? Toby Harrah did it in the late 1970's.

also my votes:
Nolan Ryan's 5714 K's.
Lajoie's .424 season average
Ryan's 7 no-hitters
Wilson's 191 RBI

RECORDS LEAST LIKELY TO BE BROKEN

Certainly, Joe DiMaggio's 56 - game hitting streak in 1941 has
to be on top of this list.

It takes an enormous amount of hitter's discipline to challenge
this record; and, none of these modern day players have it.

Another, record I might add, is batting .400 and I remember well
George Brett comments when he came close in 1980. He said "I was
not patient enough, I just needed a few more HITS, but more so
a few more WALKS".

And, he is right for all you need to officially attain .400 is
400 ABs and 160 HITS. So, the WALKS do mean a lot. Just look
at Ted Williams' numbers when he batted .406 in 1941:

Games = 142.....AB = 456.....Hits = 185.....Walks = 145

Glenn -

Not too bad for off the top of my head, though.

But I do remember when the books used to credit Lajoie with .424.

Bonds' HR record--now that they are drug testing

Chamberlain 50.4 ppg average in a season

Gretzky's goals and points in a season records

Henry Armstrong holding undisputed simultaneous championships in three weight classes.

Lakers 32 consecutive victories

Carl Hubbell's 24 consecutive victories

I also don't think we will ever see another 40 win season by a pitcher, probably not even a 30 win season.

Adam, you might want to mention that if Armstrong wre fighting today, those titles would be spread across 6 or 7 weight divisions instead of just 3.

I think the Joe D. streak and .400 are the records 'most' likely to be broken. Know one will come close to 511 wins of 60 games in a season won. I think there's something to be said about a lifetime of achievements and one season no matter how spectacular that season is.

At least in both instances, people have come somewhat close. A player like Ichiro (even though he's stumbling around now) could do both.

I'm still going with the Streak. That's like thirteen years without missing a day of work. What's the record at now? Biggio? Delgado? Sheffield?

I have not looked in a records books since I was a kid but did'nt the single season recored for highest batting average belong to Hugh Duffy .438? And the amazing part is he hit 18 HR's that year as well

Yes... but they counted walks as hits when Duffy did that...

so it doesn't correlate to modern stuff as well.

When Duffy hit .438(some sources say .440) in 1894 walks were not counted as hits.That was in 1887 when Tip O'Neil batted .435 with 50 of his walks counting as hits as per the rule at the time.Duffy was probably helped by the fact the pitching distant was changed the year before and alot of pitchers had trouble adjusting to it.It should be noted that all 4 outfielders for Philadelphia that year hit over .400,and they what i consider the best outfield ever,Billy Hamilton,Ed Delahanty and Sam Thompson,along with Tuck Turner(career .320 hitter)as the backup

Joe D's 56 game hitting streak is the only record on here I expect to see broken in my lifetime. (Interestingly, that's 56 more years if you believe the actuaries.) I also think I'll see someone bat .400, but that isn't a record unless you divide the records between pre-war and post-war. I think Tejada's at 835 now, #8 all time.

What a softball question! If he were alive, Cap Anson would naturally have to stake a claim to something (as that was his personality). I think that the most plentiful, numerical one for Anson is that I found 57 occasions where he had a bet going on some aspect of regular season big league games (or how his team would do overall over the course of a season). At least based on what was ever reported, he seems to have dwarfed the rest of big league baseball put together.

Tatis`s 2 grand slams in one inning was pretty wild, but just as wild is he hit both of them off the same pitcher! Imagine, giving up a granny, going thru the entire order again and giving up the 2`nd one! Man, not to good for the ole ERA.

The other day in a game, the first two batters tripled! That may be equaled or broken. But it was quite interesting to see it happen in an age where triples are tough to come by for one batter.

When I was playing softball in an after-school program, the 1st 3 batters on our team homered to start the game. I %%%%ed it up with a double batting 4th. That streak isn't going to be broken any time soon.

I was at Tatis' record breaking game...you should have heard the people around us talking about him getting a chance to hit two as the bases loaded again...when it happened he got a standing ovation...pretty amazing experience...

RE: 3 HR's to start the game

The Padres did this in 1987 against the Giants. Marvelle Wynne, Tony Gwynn, and John Kruk each homered. (...and I think the Padres lost the game)
