Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I don't like your ( Orel Hershiser ) name. From now on, I'm going to call you ' Bulldog .' You're going to act like a bulldog and pitch like a bulldog. I changed his life. When [Braves outfielder] Dale Murphy comes up, he's saying, 'I can't wait to face a guy whose name is Orel .' But now he's going to say, 'He must be a tough pitcher to have a name like Bulldog .'" - Hall of Fame Manager Tommy Lasorda (ESPN Writer Mike Simon, 09/13/2013, Inside Hershiser's scoreless streak , Source )

During an ESPN Interview (ESPN Writer Mike Simon, 09/13/2013, Inside Hershiser's scoreless streak , Source ), Orel Hershiser talked about his record, saying, "That (consecutive scoreless innings) streak was when I really started to feel like I belonged in the big leagues. Early on in your career, it's about building confidence and learning how to repeat success."

If you are interested in innings pitched records , we have those here on Baseball Almanac in a separate record book section—see what pitchers on this consecutive scoreless innings pitched chart appear in that particular record set.

Year-by-year innings pitched leaders are also on Baseball Almanac and the pitcher who has led either league with the fewest amount of innings pitched is David Wells of the Toronto Blue Jays, who had two-hundred thirty-one complete innings pitched during the 1999 season (the National League leader is Livan Hernandez who piched in two-hundred thirty-three innings for the Montreal Expos in 2003).
