Batting Streak Records

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a record book full of baseball milestones for batting streaks — including most consecutive games with a hit, most consecutive games with a hit by type of hitter (lefthander, righthander, etcetera) and other interesting marks.

"As one of nine men, (Joe) DiMaggio is the best player that ever lived." - Hall of Fame Manager Connie Mack in Knowing in Organizations: A Practice-Based Approach (Davide Nicolini, Silvia Gherardi, Dvora Yanow, M.E. Sharpe Publishers, September 2003, Page 44)

Batting Streaks Records by Baseball Almanac, Inc.



George Brett of the Kansas City Royals set a new American League record (and tied the National League record set by Sam Thompson in 1895) when he had three or more hits during six consecutive games (May 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 & 13) during the 1976 season.

Did you know that Wee Willie Keeler is the only ballplayer with eight twenty-game (or more) batting streaks during a Major League career? Those with seven twenty-game batting streaks include Pete Rose , Ty Cobb and Ichiro Suzuki .

On September 18, 1977 , Ted Cox debuted (American League / Boston Red Sox ) and had six consecutive hits setting the Major League record for most consecutive hits from the start of a career. The National League record holders each debuted and had four straight hits; John Hale , Bob Dernier , Mike Piazza and Derrick Gibson .
