Major League Baseball Records

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present an unprecedented collection of baseball record books that will bring to life those "cups of coffee" and keep you up to date as the baseball records fall.

"He just blew it (Nolan Ryan strikeout number five-thousand) by me. But it's an honor. I'll have another paragraph in all the baseball books. I'm already in the books three or four times." - Rickey Henderson

The Record Books by Baseball Almanac


Is there a record book you would like to see listed? Please email your requests and Baseball Almanac will do the research. The record books in this section are updated daily with help from Major League Baseball, Elias Sports Bureau, ESPN Stats & Statistics, SABR members, and Sean Burrill - a baseball records expert.

Only four players in baseball history have ever had 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases during the same season — do you know who they are?

Can you name the active players who are slugging average leaders ? How about the on base percentage leaders ? Search the baseball record books and see which active players (names appear in bold print) are Major League record holders.
