    Streaks are interesting and difficult to duplicate, but as far as "great" records are concerned they are irrelevant!

    Here are mine in no order:

    Joe DiMaggio's hitting streak(56 games)
    Cal Ripken's iron man streak(2,632)
    Orel Hershiser's scoreless innings streak(59 innings)
    Hack Wilson's single-season RBI record (191)
    Bob Gibson's ERA in 1968(1.12)
    Cy Young's (511 wins)
    Rube Marquard's 19 wins in a row
    The 1916 Giants' 26-game winning streak
    Connie Mack's 50 years managing the same team
    Ted Williams gets a hit in 17 consecutive at bats

    It was very tough and I'm sure I miss some good ones, but those are the ones that I can think of right now. I might change my list later on.

    What about you guys?

      George Hall was close ;-)

      <Ted Williams leading league in Slugging pct every year from 1941 to 1955 with asterick*. In some of those years he didn't have enough AB to qualify, still its remarkable.>

      1943-1945, 1952 and 1953 are a STRETCH :headbeat:

I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

        That's on base, not hits

          Do you happen to know who set the NL record with reaching base in 12 consecutive plate appearances? I just ran across it in one of the Cardinals history books I was flipping through in the past couple days. It was either Enos Slaughter or Joe Medwick, but I can't remember which one. I really don't think it was Stan Musial, that would have been too obvious and probably would have stuck out more in my mind. Slaughter and Medwick get largely forgotten, and I think it was one of them that did it. Darn, now I am conjuring up all kinds of names as possibilities like Pepper Martin and Johnny Mize too! I gotta dig in these books again, which is always a fun task for me!

            It was probably Medwick. He is tied for the record for consecutive at-bats with a hit (10). So, for plate appearances, he might have reached base safely 12 straight times. Frank Ward holds the all-time NL record with 17, but that was 1893.

                Yep, found it while looking for something else (always works that way it seems). It was July 21, 1936, in a game against the Giants at the Polo Grounds - Joe Medwick goes 3 for 3 with 2 doubles and a single, to tie the National League record for hits in 10 consecutive at-bats. He had gone 7 for 7 in a doubleheader against the Braves at home in St. Louis during the previous 2 games on July 19, 1936.
