MLB Records That Will Never Be Broken
There will be records in all major sports that will never be broken. Some MLB records will never be broken. Will walks in a season be broken? How about Bonds's career home run record?
How about the consecutive games played by Ripken? DiMaggio's hit streak?
You never know what can happen. Lets take a look at my list.
No. 10: Home Runs in a Single Season
I think home runs deserve the No. 10 spot. Before 1998, no one thought Maris's home run record would've been broken. After 1998, no one thought McGwire's record would've been broken.
Now after 2001, no one thinks Bonds's record will be broken. With Pujols and A-Rod in the record, who knows.
No. 9: Home Runs in a Career
Same thing with No. 10. Who knows what will happen with Pujols and A-Rod. Yes, Bonds was tainted but the direction Pujols and A-Rod are heading, you never know. This could be broken.
No. 8: Saves in a Single Season
62 saves is a tough number to beat. With K-Rod still in the league, he could break it again. I don't think anyone will touch this record but with the record holder still active, you never know.
No. 7: Saves in a Career
554 saves will never be touched. But people thought that about Lee Smith's 478. Hoffman, to me, is the greatest closer to play baseball.
No. 6: Home Runs in a Game
There are 12 people tied for this record with four in a game. People always come close but no one will break this. Four in a game is a hard record to beat.
No. 5: RBI in a Season
Hack Wilson's number of 191 will never be touched. Never. No one has come close to 191 RBI in a season since Hack Wilson did it in 1930. Gehrig came close the following year with 184. The closest active is Manny Ramirez driving in 165 runs in 1999 with Cleveland.
No. 4: Strikeouts in a Career
Nolan Ryan's record of 5,714 is a record that no one will even come close to. No one pitches enough innings anymore or stays around long enough to strike that many people out.
No. 3: Hits in a Career
Pete Rose should be in the hall. No matter if he bet on baseball or not. He had 4,256 hits in his career. That number will NEVER be touched. I'm sure of it. 4,000 hits in a career is an insane number.
No. 2: Consecutive Games Played
With all the injuries that happen this year, Ripken's ironman record won't be touched. 2,632 CONSECUTIVE games played is insane. He didn't miss one game from 1982 until 1999.
No. 1: Hit Streak
Fifty-six games with a hit will never be touched. People will always come close but no one ever does it. Joe DiMaggio's record will NEVER be touched. And I mean NEVER. Rollins came close at one point but he faltered. No one will do it.
