22 MLB records that will never be broken in our lifetimes

Yardbarker Logo By Matt Whitener of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 22: The legendary 1941 hitting streak by the Yankee Clipper is perhaps the most iconic and dominant run in the history of the game. DiMaggio hit .404 and accumulated 91 hits during his streak, which is 11 games longer than the next closest consecutive games streak of its kind. No player since Pete Rose in 1978 has hit in as many as 40 straight games, and with the expanded usage of specialized bullpen arms in today’s game, it is less likely than ever that the record will fall.
