The umpire reminded him that he had a strike left to which the player replied, "You can call it, I didn't see the first two!"

Did you know that Roger Clemens , ranked third overall on the all-time top 1,000 strikeout research, struck out a Major League record twenty batters during a game — on two different occasions ?

What right-handed pitcher had the most strikeouts in just the National League? What lefty struckout the most batters in the American League? Find those records, and dozens more, in the MLB Strikeout Records Set by Pitchers in our Baseball Records research.

The first 3,000 Strikeouts Club (pitchers with three thousand or more career striksouts) memorabilia show was conducted in 1998, in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Examine the box scores, trivia, age related data, and more research about this truly elite group of pitchers.
