"Think these 10 sports records can be broken? Think again"

From the L. A. Times:

The assignment — rank the top 10 sports records that will never be broken — seemed straightforward enough until you dig into the research and realize you could easily fill the list with records from Major League Baseball alone.

To diversify the field, filters were added to eliminate marks set long ago in sports that have undergone such drastic change that those records will never be approached, let alone broken.

I'm surprised the season record for doubles (67), set in 1931, has never been surpassed, nor even seriously threatened.
It, like the season record for triples, is fluky, both held by otherwise unknown players who never had another season even remotely like their record-setting one.

John Thacker

Rare to see a list like this without DiMaggio's hit streak on there. (Or fluky things like Johnny Vander Meer's consecutive no-hitters.) As they said, you could fill it up with baseball.

UNC"s home winning streak against Clemson is also a pretty ridiculous one.

Ted Craig

The players stayed at UCLA in the late '60s because moving to the NBA meant a pay cut.
