Unbreakable Sports Records

Will Yao Ming ever score as many points as Wilt Chamberlain?
Yao Ming

Is there such a thing as an unbreakable record? From baseball to basketball, Kidzworld looks at some world sports records, which will never be broken.

Unbreakable Sports Records - Most Wins

World Record Holder: Al Spalding of the Boston Braves.
Record: 54 wins by a pitcher in one season - set in 1875.
Reason It's Unbreakable: Pitchers are wusses these days and usually only pitch 35 games a season. They all need to rest their arms for at least three days or else they start crying. No pitcher has won more than 31 games since before your parents were born so it's more likely that the Cubs will win the World Series than a pitcher will win 50 games. When Al Spalding went 54 - 5, baseball was a much different game. Pitchers would throw every game and the spitball was still legal.

Unbreakable Sports Records - Most Times Hit By A Pitch

Record Holder: Ron Hunt of the Montreal Expos and San Francisco Giants.
Record: Hit by a pitch 50 times in 1971.
Reason It's Unbreakable: Because there will never be another player who will be willing to take that much punishment to get on base. Sometimes a player can't get out of the way but when someone gets hit that many times in a season - they're obviously looking to get hit. Ron led the league in being hit by pitches for seven straight seasons.

Unbreakable Sports Records - Most Goals

Record Holder: Wayne Gretzky of the Edmonton Oilers.
Records: 92 goals in a season in 1982 and 215 points in a season in 1986.
Reason It's Unbreakable: No player will ever be as good as Gretzky and play with players like the Great One did. With players making so much money, it's impossible for hockey teams to have as many superstars as the Edmonton Oilers did in the 1980s.

Unbreakable Sports Records - Most Points

Record Holder: Wilt Chamberlain of the Philadelphia Warriors.
Record: 100 points in one basketball game on March 2, 1962.
Reason It's Unbreakable: When "Wilt the Stilt" played, he was one of the few seven footers in the game. He dominated other teams so much that the NBA changed the size of the shooting lane to make it harder for Wilt to score. These days a player makes headlines if he scores 50 points in a game. Wilt once averaged 50 points a game for an entire season.
