Single Season Leaders for Runs Allowed

A common goal most every pitcher has during the regular season when he places his cleat on the rubber and lets the ball loose is to win. By any means necessary. While seeking that goal a pitcher is often apt to allow a few runs. Maybe even more than a few...

Allowing runs is never a pitcher's goal, but it is a reality of the art pitching and Baseball Almanac is pleased to present the top one-hundred all time runs allowed during a single season leaders. Note: A bold faced entry denotes that the pitcher was active during the previous Major League season.

Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Despite his sober demeanor off the field (he did not drink, smoke, or gamble), (Tony) Mullane was a free spirit who routinely ignored the game's reserve clause." - Author A.D. Suehsdorf on BasebalLibrary.com

baseball almanac fast facts

Why did John Coleman have such a tough season in 1883? Perhaps it was because the 1883 Philadelphia Phillies , who played ninety-eight games and lost eighty-one of them, started Coleman in sixty-one of the ninety-eight games and made him throw fifty-nine complete games.

Will White is as unique a case as Coleman . He pitched for the 1879 Cincinnati Reds and knew what he had to do - start & finish every inning of every game as there were NO other pitchers on their roster!

The record for fewest runs allowed in a single season by the league leader belongs to George Smith of the Philadelphia Phillies who only allowed one-hundred two runs in 1919 and Jim Bagby of the Cleveland Indians who only allowed one-hundred eight runs in 1918.
