  • Most Consectutive Reaching Base Safely to Start Career

    Jay Bruce has had 2BB, 2 1B, and a 2B to start his MLB career.

    What is the record for consectutive PA's without getting out to start career?

    I saw that Ted Cox holds the record for most hits to start career in 1977 (6 hits).... and he had a walk in there, so is 7 the record? Can't find anything else related in a google search.

      5-John Paciorek, HOU NL, 1963 (3-for-3, 2BB).
      Paciorek also reached in 5 consecutive appearances to end his career.

      In fact, they were the same 5 PAs.

        Really? What happened? Whyd he never play again? Was he a pitcher?
        "I don't like to sound egotistical, but every time I stepped up to the plate with a bat in my hands, I couldn't help but feel sorry for the pitcher."

        Just a note to all the active members of BBF, I consider all of you the smartest baseball people I have ever communicated with and love everyday I am on here. Thank you all!

          Got injured in spring training
          Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! 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.
