In baseball, the record books are often rewritten as players from newer generations rise to great heights to make their own marks.
After all, as General Douglas MacArthur once said, records are made to be broken.
Well, kind of.
What MacArthur actually said was, "Rules are mostly made to be broken and are too often for the lazy to hide behind." It was eventually shortened and edited to reflect the new meaning.
Many MLB records are simply unbreakable, such as Cy Young’s all-time 511 wins or Old Hoss Radbourn’s 59 wins in 1884. Because of changes to the game over time, those records stand as about as untouchable as you can get.
However, other records currently in place could indeed be broken. Certain career marks could even fall within the next few years.
We will take a look at some at these records and rank them in order of easiest to fall.
