13 MLB Records That Are Impossible To Break
Organized baseball, as we know it, began in 1869 and over the course of the last 146 years, some remarkable feats have been accomplished. While many say that no MLB record is unbreakable or that records are made to be broken, there are those that are so astounding that they will, indeed, never be broken. Here is a baker’s dozen of those MLB records:
The Cleveland Spiders of 1899 were, arguably, the worst team in professional baseball history. In reality, however, it wasn’t entirely their fault. In those days, an owner could own more than one major league baseball team and many did. The Spiders’ owner also owned a team in St. Louis, which he saw as having more profit potential than his Cleveland team. Because of that, he stacked his St. Louis team with the best players he could buy or steal and sent everyone else to Cleveland. As a result, the Spiders had talent that simply could not compete on a major league level. In 1899, MLB played a 122 game schedule and the Spiders’ final record was 11-101. This record will never be broken because today’s MLB teams play a split schedule of 81 home games and 81 road games.
