BASEBALL RECORDS THAT WILL ABSOLUTLY
POSITIVELY (YOU CAN COUNT ON IT) TRUST ME, NO
DOUBT ABOUT IT, NEVER NEVER BE BROKEN!!
CY YOUNG: 511 wins: How in heavens name will anyone break that record with pitchers going every fifth day and relievers coming in at the drop of a hat.
1921:397 1922:401 1923:384 1924:424 1925:403. Forget it. Its in the bag
WALTER JOHNSON: 110 shutouts: Who pitches shutouts anymore? Who even goes seven innings anymore? How about six??
TY COBB: Lifetime batting average of .366. Nowadays players make the Hall of Fame with averages that barely reach .300, if even that.
JACK CHESBRO: 41 wins in a season: How many people win even 20 games these days?
Chief Wilson: 36 triples (1912). Nobody is even close. Who is Chief Wilson anyway?
SAM CRAWFORD: 309 lifetime triples. Who ever heard of Sam Crawford? You should have, hes in the Hall of Fame.
ED WALSH: 464 Innings. With the way pitchers are handled nowadays. 200 is a lot.
DEACON PHILLIPE: 5 straight complete games in 10 days in the first World Series(1903). He won the first three (all shutouts) and lost the next two.
DON LARSEN: A perfect game in the World Series (1956). In order for someone to top that they would have to pitch two perfect games in a World Series. HA, HA, HA, HA.
