Single Season Leaders for Wins

To win is the goal every pitcher has when he places his pitching foot on the rubber and lets the ball loose. To win is never an easy item to accomplish on the major league level, and it is always a challenge to maintain a a good winning percentage. Wins never come easy and these are the pitchers that won the most games in a single season.

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present the top five-hundred (500) all-time single season leaders in Major League wins. Note: A bold faced entry denotes that the player was active during the previous Major League season.

Did you know that Denny McLain , the last pitcher in Major League history to win thirty games in a season, appears in the top five-hundred single season leaders for games won tied at number one-hundred six?

Baseball Almanac believes that this record is a perfect example of an unbeatable baseball record. Do you agree? Disagree? Take a moment, share your opinion, and tell us your thoughts on other unbeatable records on our message board .

The modern Major League standard for a "great" season is a pitcher with twenty or more victories, yet they would not begin to make this chart of Single Season Leaders for Wins until about number three-hundred eighty.
