Impressive Sports Records That Are Nearly Unbreakable (12 pics)

Posted in Random » Interesting   16 Sep 2014   / 7674 views

Cal Ripken Jr.’s 2,632 consecutive game streak

This record is so unbreakable that the longest current streak going on is 31-year-old Hunter Pence’s 336-game streak, 2,000 short of even starting to think about the record.

Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hit streak

The closest anyone came to touching this was when Pete Rose hit in 44 consecutive in 1978, which is still about two weeks short of breaking it. In the modern game, only Jimmy Rollins, at 38 games, has even threatened.

Cy Young’s 749 complete games

In an age when pitcher’s arms are babied, no one will ever come close to the 749 complete games that Cy Young pitched. Even for the old game, that was absolutely bananas.

Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game

Wilt the Stilt was fed the ball constantly towards the end of his 100-point game in 1962, but that doesn’t make it any less impressive. Wilt scored more than many NBA’s team’s points per game average these days.

Wilt Chamberlain’s 55-rebound game

Turns out this guy was pretty good at basketball. Bill Russell set the record with 51 just months before, but Chamberlain’s 55 hasn’t even been threatened since.

Pat Summitt’s 38 winning seasons

Coaching for 38 years is an accomplishment in and of itself, but ending each one of them above .500 is absolutely extraordinary.

Rickey Henderson’s 1,406 stolen bases

The fact that he played until 44 might have something to do with it, but the next active player is Juan Pierre, who still has 852 bases to steal, and is currently 37.

Wayne Gretzky’s 215-point season

The great one has put up the highest four point totals in NHL history and if you don’t count the almost-as-talented Mario Lemieux, The closest anyone ever got to Gretzky was Steve Yzerman’s 155.

The 1995 Bulls 72-win season

On the road to their fourth NBA title, the Bulls destroyed the Lakers long-standing 69-13 season, and only ended up with 10 wins because they rested their starters in the final game.

Pete Rose’s 4,256 hit career

Only one other player has even cracked 4 grand, and that’s Ty Cobb. Jeter has hit 3,450, but he’s hanging it up this season, so unless he has a SUPER-productive final two weeks, Rose’s record is safe.

Cordarrelle Patterson’s 109-yard touchdown

This is not a historically impressive record, but it lands on the list because it is impossible to break, as a 110-yard NFL touchdown will land you out of bounds. The most anyone will be able to do is tie it.

Bill Mosienko’s 21-second hat trick

These three goals in a blistering 21 seconds will likely never ever get touched. The fact that he did it on the road is even more insane.

Hmmm...I see Barry Bonds home run records are conspicuously absent.
Could it be that PED's disqualified him?

BTW, even though it isn't a sport, the world record holder for underage cock sucking is dang8521. He should be along soon to make a comment.

#4 kobe bryant actually scored 80+ a couple years ago, and that was in an era with a lot more overall talent, i.e. harder to do. the rebounding record is a similar case, altho still very impressive.

#6 that streak is not so impressive to me. the good sports programs in the country have an enormous advantage in terms of talent pool, resources and facilities. good coaches that stick with one college will tend to threaten this record now and in the future.
