Does he think he's a forward?
Some of the records I came across, while unbreakable, are so obscure that they don't make the list, but are still worth a read.
While Tom Barrasso had a great career in the NHL, he holds a few strange records that aren't likely to ever be broken. He's the only goalie to ever play in the NHL straight out of high school, without college or major junior, and he's the youngest winner of the Vezina Trophy (for best goalie) as an 18-year-old. But probably the weirdest of Barrasso's records is that he is the all-time leader in career points by a goaltender, with 48.
Eddie Gaedel holds the distinction of being the shortest player to ever play Major League Baseball. At just 3'7", Gaedel wore the number "1/8" and was used for one at-bat, in which he was walked on four straight pitches before being replaced by a pinch-runner. Because this kind of publicity stunt would probably be considered politically incorrect these days, I doubt we will ever see this kind of thing again.
On October 7, 1965, a 50 mph (80 km/h) wind gust helped golfer Robert Mitera sink history’s longest hole-in-one, a 447-yard ace of the 10th hole at Omaha’s Miracle Hill Golf Club.
In 1964, Norman Manley scored hole-in-ones on back-to-back par 4's. It's the only time this feat has ever been accomplished. Manley also holds the record for most career hole-in-ones, with 59. I guess some people are just lucky!
Crawford holds the all-time record for most MLB career triples, with 309.
Babe Ruth is the only player to ever lead the MLB in ERA, shutouts and complete games in a season, then lead in batting average and home runs in a different season. Ruth accomplished a ton of amazing feats, but this is definitely one of the strange ones.
Dahlen holds the distinction of most Super Bowl rings all-time, with seven. What makes this obscure is that he never played a single NFL game, but rather won all seven rings as an administrator.
Jim Hardy threw eight interceptions in an NFL game. It really makes me wonder, just how bad was his backup?
