Did you know that only eighteen pitchers in Major League Baseball history have earned a win against all thirty Major League teams? Sportswriter AJ Cassavell once wrote, " Beating one Major League team figures to be difficult enough for a starting pitcher. Beating all 30 of them, however, is nothing short of pitching history ." We agree and are pleased to present the I've Beaten Every Major League Team "club" that includes these 18 twirlers: Kevin Brown , A.J. Burnett , Bartolo Colon , Dan Haren , Tim Hudson , Randy Johnson , John Lackey , Al Leiter (who started the "club"), Kyle Lohse , Derek Lowe , Jamie Moyer , Terry Mulholland , Vicente Padilla , Max Scherzer , Curt Schilling , Javier Vazquez , Woody Williams and Barry Zito .

On August 10, 2003 , Atlanta Braves shortstop Rafael Furcal caught a hard hit line drive (out #1), touched second base where Mike Matheny had left (out #2), then tagged Orlando Palmeiro who was trying to return back to first base (out #3) - an incredibly rare unassisted triple play . Why did we mention this here? Because Woody Williams was the batter that day, the first, and through today, only pitcher to hit into an unassisted triple play during a regular season game .

Woody Williams Gets a Hit Box Score
Woody Williams Gets a Hit | The Asbury Park Press | June 14, 1997
Woody Williams hit a single into right field in the fifth inning, off Curt Schilling , on June 13, 1997 - the first Toronto Blue Jays pitcher to record a hit during a regular season game (interleague play started in 1997). Williams finished his "hitting career" in Toronto with three three singles, the most hits by a pitcher in franchise history until 2018! Do you know what pitcher passed him that year? [ Answer ]
