10 Most Unbreakable Records in Sports History
10. MLB Most Complete Games in a Career
Cy Young completed 749 games over his 22 year career. That means he pitched 749 games from start to finish. He also holds the records for most games started with 915, and most innings pitched with 7,355. In addition, he has 511 wins, also a record, and pitched 76 shutouts. It’s no wonder he’s in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Pitchers now have their arms taken care of much more than in the past, so it seems impossible that anyone can break this. The current active leader has pitched 66 complete games and has been playing since 1998 (Roy Halladay).
9. NBA Single-Game Scoring Record
In March of 1962 while playing for the Philadelphia Warriors, Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in one game against the New York Knicks. The average for the league per-game is currently about 98 points, so to have this many points scored by a single player seems unrealistic. Kobe Bryant scored an 81-point game in 2006, but he is no longer at the peak of his career and is far less selfish than he used to be.
8. MLB Longest Game Hitting Streak
Joe DiMaggio is probably most renowned for his record 56 game long hitting streak. It seems like a record that might be topped, but the closest anyone has come to beating this in the past 20 years was Jimmy Rollins of the Phillies in 2005-2006 with a streak of 38. As people get closer, the pressure builds, which makes it more likely that they mess it up.
