Let's switch it up and have some fun.  I'm sure lots of you follow sports in addition to bowling.

I will start us off with a few sports records that I believe will never be broken:

Walter Johnson's 110 shutouts pitched during his baseball career.  Obvious reason for how the game has developed over different eras

Joe DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak.  In this day and age, anyone who even gets up to 30, because of media coverage, social media, etc. will start to feel enormous pressure, that coupled with the way relief pitching is in the modern game will make it impossible to break this record.

Wayne Gretzky's 92 goals in a season.

What records in sports do you believe will never be broken and why?

Ted William's .400 plus batting average

Barry Bonds   762 Hr's


When Michael Schumacher retired I would have said his
total F1 wins but Lewis Hamilton will more than likely beat it

Wilt Chamberlain's 100 point game

Nope I don't follow sports. I only play. And it has to be a non-physically demanding sport like bowling or pool or darts or axe throwing or cornhole. Also it has to be an indoor sport.

Cal Ripken's 2632 consecutive games played will never be broken, even if a player stays healthy for 17 straight years.  Baseball managers now strategically schedule off days for all players, including the superstars.   
 
Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game has already been broken at amateur levels.  I can see a NBA team cooperating to help someone score 101 points. 
 
And of course, Glenn Allison's 900 series will never be surpassed.

I think were talking about the big leagues so Wilt might be hard to beat




Cy Young’s 749 complete games and 511 wins


 Byron Nelson’s 11 PGA Tour Wins in a Row

I agree on Cy Young.  That would take 21 years of pitching 9 innings every 5th day.

^the Cleveland Indians won 22 games in a row just three years ago!

Johnny Vander Meer's record of two no hitters in a row will never be tied let alone broken.
On June 11, 1938, Vander Meer pitched a no-hitter against the Boston Bees. Four days later against the Brooklyn Dodgers in what was the first night game ever held at Ebbets Field, he threw another no-hitter, becoming the only player in major league history to throw two straight no-hitters, a historic record that has never been tied and almost certainly will never be beaten.

Allie Brandt's 886 series !!!

Oh, never mind, after holding up for 40 or 50 years it's  been beaten
about what ? , a 1000 times now ?


Budweiser's 3858  !!! (1958)  40+ years ?

All with 80% of organized bowlers are gone since 1980 ? Urethane ball came out , lane manicuring was being widely used.
Sorry, some broken records tick me off,

UCLA. 88 games ?

Who beat them ?

Notre Dame beat UCLA, with Digger Phelps at the helm!

UCLA went on to lose their next game and then in the NCAA Tournament. I believe the Notre Dame loss kicked off a "lost weekend" of sorts...it really made them vulnerable.

I agree though, nobody will beat the 88 game win streak (in men's basketball, at least)



The record that wont be broken, Oklahoma's 47 game winning streak in college football.

If I remember right, the UCLA winning streak also included 7 straight national championships. Started with 3 straight by Alcindor (Jabbar), then 2 by Wicks, Rowe, Patterson, then 2 by Walton teams, both undefeated. Waltons team appeared headed for 3 straight undefeated seasons and an 8th straight Championship until the ND loss.

Incidentally, Brandts record was on Shellac during the highest scoring era in bowling if you take in to account the relatively small number of serious competitors. Lots of guys in the 230 average range, topped by Skang Mercurios 237. Not bad with 2 hole balls on those solid maple pins. Buds were rumored to have shot their record on shellac also, according to a couple of pretty good sources.
