  • Consecutive games streak

    Barry Bonds just ended his streak for safely reaching base in 58 straingt games. I didn't see what the record is for this. Do any of you know? (DiMaggio hit safely in 56 straingt games. He may have gotten a walk in his first hitless games after that streak.)

    I believe Ted Williams holds the record for reaching base safely in consecutive at-bats (16 in 1957: 6 hits, 9 walks, 1 HBP) -- unless Bonds has now broken that string also.

    DiMaggio did continue to reach base beyond that point and eventually established the record at 74 consecutive games.

      Thanks for the input. Maybe that better helps me accept that DiMaggio beat Williams for the 1941 AL-MVP.

      (But I STILL don't understand the 1942 AL-MVP choice of Joe Gordon over Ted Williams!)

        Resurrecting this ancient thread from 2002, (Im scanning very old Forum sections of BBF that I seldom visit today) The record for consecutive games reached base has actually been determined to be 84 by Ted Williams in 1949. I think it was one of the SABR, or SABR inspired anyway; score sheet / box score projects of recent years that allowed this record to be found / calculated.

          Orlando Cabrera had a 63-game on-base streak last year, but that's about all I can remember.
