There were similarities. Despite the distractions, this book is an easy read and contains many good lessons. It's just too ba Oh, how I wanted to like this book, but it fell a little flat. It's just too bad that such a great story wasn't presented in a more compelling way. There's some small but interesting stories from his career but it isn't what I would call a biography. Most of the book seemed rather uninteresting but I didn't hate reading it.

For a fan of Cal's this will be worth the short read but it isn't a must find.

The writing is decently done and will keep you engaged even if it isn't always interesting material. Enjoyed his book. I have a hard time with books like this when ultra successful people write post success and tell you that great things can happen to anyone who works hard. I tend to agree with Gladwell see The Tipping Point, Blink, etc that more than hard work has to line up in your favor. Success is almost a perfect storm of circumstances that line up for a few.

Let's look at some of them in detail starting with my personal favorite, Rickey Henderson's incredible stolen bases. Henderson was 23 in when he set this record. That season he played in games, batted. He stole three bases in six games and had three amazing games in which he stole four bases—impressive even if short of the post record of six in a game done twice by Eddie Collins in and tied by Otis Nixon , Eric Young , and Carl Crawford In comparison, the recent high for stolen bases is 78 set by Jose Reyes in For Henderson, Brock, and Reyes these three ratios are 1.

That means that Henderson needed just over one game for each of his stolen bases or almost a stolen base per game on average while the best base stealer in recent times took over two games for each base stolen. What about the hits record? Could that possibly be true? Did Ichiro Suzuki really make more hits than there are games in a season in ? The only modern players with at least hits besides Suzuki are Wade Boggs and Darin Erstad, who each had hits in one season.

The only modern player to do it is Suzuki, who did it twice he also had hits in Why did hits stand so long? Because to accumulate that total Sisler had to play in games, make plate appearances, strike out only 19 times, walk only 46 times, and bat. He made four hits in 12 games, three hits in 29 games, two hits in 33 games, and a single hit in 56 games. He played in only 24 games that season in which he failed to get a hit. In comparison, Adrian Beltre, who led the league in hits in with , had 41 games in which he failed to get a hit.

These numbers show that in order to challenge the hits record, a player has to play in virtually every game of the season, make a very high number of plate appearances, hit for high average, and not walk very much. High average by itself will not get it done. For example, even with the game hitting streak in and a. Ted Williams only? He played in all but one of the Mariners games , led the league in plate appearances and batting average.

Suzuki had four games in which he made five hits, six games with four hits, 24 games with three hits, 46 games with two hits, 54 games with a single hit, and he failed to get a hit in only 27 games that season. In spite of having such a tremendous season, Suzuki had hits after playing in the same number of games as Sisler and reached that total only because he had a five-hit game and a four-hit game a few games earlier.

In subsequent games he made 1, 2, 1, 1, 3 October 1, the day he broke the record , 1, and 2 hits to get to his total of He made at least one hit in each of the last 13 games of the season for a total of If Suzuki had made only?

Ichiro Suzuki needed an equally extraordinary season to break that record. Anything is possible, but a player will have to play in almost every game and have a simply superb season to exceed either of these hit totals.

The record is just six better or about three percent higher than the runs that Lou Gehrig drove in in Ramirez played in games, made hits, hit 44 home runs, batted. He had eight RBIs in one game and five in another. He had five games with four RBIs, 12 games with three, 30 games with two, and 36 games with one. He failed to drive in a run in just 62 games. Those are superb RBI numbers for single season.

What numbers did Wilson put up in ? He played in games, made plate appearances, had hits, batted. He drove in nine runs in the last three games of the season and 12 runs in the last five games. These are amazing RBI totals. In order to generate that many, he had to have men on base to drive in. Historically, Gehrig had been credited with in and Greenberg with in The next highest total on the walks list is by Babe Ruth in The only player to exceed is Bonds, who did it three times between and That record is 38 percent better than the next highest post total 26 and 46 percent better than the average of the next ten.

With an incredible feet to the center field wall, the Pirates hit the most triples since Changes such as going from a four-man rotation to a five-man rotation in the mid- s and the increased use of relief pitchers since the s have resulted in a general trend of using more pitchers who pitch fewer innings over time.

These changes have substantially reduced the number of innings pitched by starting pitchers, which in turn has reduced the number of decisions awarded to starting pitchers.

"That Record Will Never Be Broken!": How Many Unbreakable Records Are There?

This makes it highly unlikely that pitching records set in the early s will ever be broken unless the use of pitchers changes substantially in the future. The arguments in the previous paragraph apply to both the innings pitched and wins records in Table 1. Ed Walsh pitched an incredible innings in and Jack Chesbro had an amazing 41 wins in To achieve that innings pitched total, Walsh started 49 games and completed an astonishing 42 of them while compiling a 40—15 overall record.

He appeared in 66 games and had six saves. Chesbro started 51! But what about a pitching record that is only about 40 years old rather than years old? Does the same logic apply?

For example, Nolan Ryan struck out an astonishing batters in Ryan started 39 games, completed 26 of them, pitched innings, and had a 2. He finished with a record of 21—16 and also walked a league-leading batters. He averaged He struck out 17 batters in one game and 16 in another. He also had an incredible total of 23 games with double-digit strikeouts. Since both Ryan and Kofax pitched in a very different pitching era from today, it might be tempting to say this is a record that will never be broken.

Who did it?

Randy Johnson. The Big Unit struck out an amazing batters in when he went 21—6 with a 2.

He threw three complete games in 34 starts. How did he accumulate almost as many strikeouts in about 80 fewer innings? Johnson struck out an incredible He struck out 20 batters in one game and 16 batters in three other games.

Like Ryan, he had double-digit strikeouts in 23 of his starts. Johnson had a season for the ages in terms of strikeouts in and still did not break the record.

The next two recent pitchers on the season strikeout list who are not Ryan, Koufax, or Johnson are Sam McDowell, who struck out in , and Curt Schilling, who struck out in Those still impressive strikeout totals are a far cry from The numbers show that Ryan, Koufax, and Johnson were very special pitchers in terms of strikeouts.

The similarities of the numbers for the two records implies that the hitting streak record deserves its iconic status. However, Wayne Winston in his book Mathletics argues that the breakability of this record is primarily a function of the overall baseball batting average.

To be specific, Winston finds that there is a 2.

The results are shown in Table 2. A thoughtful examination of the records in Table 2 can elicit only one response: wow!

All of the career records are amazing! With the sole exception of the saves record, every one of them required over 20 years of sustained, superior performance. Just how big is that difference? There are only 45 players on the career stolen base list who have more than stolen bases however a stolen base is defined in their whole career. Henderson has that many more than Brock. Recent season highs for stolen bases have been around Is that possible? Is it likely?

How did Henderson do it? He needed extraordinary longevity, durability, and performance.

During his year career an amazing career length given how stealing bases punishes the body and can result in injury he led the league in steals 12 times, stole over bases three times, stole between 77 and 93 bases four times, and between 41 and 66 bases nine times.

He played in over games in all but five of his seasons while maintaining a career. Henderson achieved such a high career OBP by walking a lot.

In comparison, Lou Brock, who played for 19 years, led the league in steals eight times, had a single season with over steals, and just two other seasons with 70 or more steals. He batted. Table 2 also shows that Henderson leads the career list for runs scored with 2, Although this total is just two percent above the 2, put up by Ty Cobb, it is still a very impressive total.

The recent high for runs is the put up by Jeff Bagwell in The seasonal high has been in the — runs scored range recently. What did Henderson do? He scored more than runs 13 times with his high being in , and scored at least runs in four other seasons.

He scored at least 40 runs every other season except for his shortened last season.

How likely is this record to be broken? The next players on the career runs scored list after Cobb are Barry Bonds with 2, and Hank Aaron with 2, Arguably, the numbers and are the most famous figures in baseball history.

Baseball fans tend to throw these numbers around casually, but it must be understood that for anybody to hit more than home runs in a career is incredible. It takes 14 seasons with 50 home runs or Hitting 50 home runs in a season is quite an achievement; only 27 different players have done it a total of 43 times.

Even at the height of the steroid era there were only two years and where four players hit 50 or more home runs.

In that same era there were only seven years where the top ten totals for home runs were at least That means all three of the men who have hit over career home runs had very rare careers.

Even though he never hit 50 home runs in a season, he hit 40 or more home runs eight times, with a career high 47 in , 39 home runs in two other seasons, and 38 in another. That means he hit 20 or more home runs in all but three of his seasons, the first and last two 13,12,10 home runs respectively being the exception. He was able to hit that many because of his incredible durability. He played in at least games in all but two of those 23 seasons, which resulted in 13, plate appearances third on the career list and 12, at bats second on the career list.

But what may be less widely recognized is how far ahead of his peers Ruth was in terms of home run production. In his first season with the Yankees, , Ruth hit 54 home runs. This total is almost triple the next highest of 19 that George Sisler hit that season and is more home runs than every other team except the Philadelphia Phillies hit that year.

The following season Ruth hit 59 with the next highest total being In addition to those three stellar seasons Ruth had a fourth plus home run season in when he hit 54 again. Only two other players, Mark McGwire 70, 65, 58, 52 and Sammy Sosa 66, 64, 63, 50 have had four 50 or more home run seasons. Ruth also hit plus home runs in seven other seasons and had between 22 and 35 home runs in five additional seasons. The fact that his career total of has been exceeded does not diminish the magnitude of his home run accomplishments.

It should also be noted that his career total would likely be higher had he not started out as a very good pitcher.
