baseball almanac fast facts

The most complete games thrown during a Major League career by a left-handed pitcher is a record held by hall of fame hurler Eddie Plank in the American League and hall of fame hurler Warren Spahn in the National League.

Did you know that Jack Taylor , tied for fifty-fourth on this chart, set the Major League record for complete games during a single season when he threw thirty-nine in 1904 — an amount greater than an entire league in this modern bullpen era?

Commissioner Ford Frick once made a list of unbeatable marks , but should have included Cy Young from this chart as it appears no active pitcher will ever have the health to compete with the chart toppers. Not one active (still pitching today) pitcher is on this list.
