Who's ready for some baseball records? Baseball fans love the best of all time, and a sport that has been around for almost two centuries has more heroes than practically any other sport in the world. Name such as Lou Gehrig, Ty Cobb and Jimmie Foxx are as well known nearly 100 years after they played as Albert Pujols, Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter.
But, which records do these players hold? Some have lasted over 100 years, and others are on the brink of being broken. In 1998, Cal Ripken Jr. broke a Lou Gehrig record no one thought was possible to be broken. Still today, few experts if any think Ripken's record will be broken. '98 also featured one of baseball's greatest chases in the history of the game as Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa battled it out at the plate. Which record, and which player would eventually take home the title?
Do you know which speedster holds the record for career stolen bases? Or, that this player was so good most people don't think this record will ever be broken either? How about the hitters who hold career hits, singles, doubles, triples and home run record? Do you know which pitchers struck out the most hitters, gave up the most home runs or had the best winning percentage throughout their careers?
These are the stats you love to hear about, but how many do you really know? Take this quiz to see if you can figure out which players hold these baseball records!
