Longest hitting streaks all time in MLB


Recommended Posts

I thought I heard Hart had the 4th or 5th longest in team history....so assuming 28 other teams prior to expansion have around 4 guys that have streaks that long, that is where I came up with 150. Hopefully someone can come trhough to see how offi I am.

These are the first two links I grabbed from a Google search for "major league baseball hitting streaks" (no quotes).

 

30+ Game Hitting Streaks (Baseball-Almanac.com)

 

Hitting Streaks?mlb.com

 

The mlb.com page offers lists of all kinds of 'feats', both via popup and in the left column. That's a great link. I'll have to get it into the Major League Forum FAQ.

That’s the only thing Chicago’s good for: to tell people where Wisconsin is.

In searching baseball-reference.com's streak finder, I found over 300 hitting streaks of 20 or more games only going back to 1957.

 

It's interesting the no-names that have had hitting streaks of 20 games or more: John Flaherty, Butch Huskey, Denny Doyle, Al Martin, Reggie Jefferson, Jerome Walton, Lenny Randle, Rey Sanchez, Tony Eusebio, Carlos Garcia, Mike Vail.

 

Meanwhile these Hall-of-Famers or almost certain Hall-of-Famers have never had a 20-game hitting streak: Yount, Biggio, Ripken, Yastrzemski, Schmidt, Barry Bonds, Griffey Jr, Gary Carter, Rickey Henderson.

My dad and I were talking and he brought up an interesting point. It sure seems like Hart's streak has flown under the radar a lot more than Hardy's earlier this season. Why is that? At first I thought it was because of all of Hardy's home runs, but Hart has hit his fare share (and important shots, to boot) is it becuase the brewers aren't as hot as they were?

Hardy had his at the beginning of the season to send a perennial doormat to the top of the league standings. Hart is doing his in the middle of a season with a non east coast team already on top of the standings.

EA Sports...It's in the game...until we arbitrarily decide to shut off the server.
