Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak is considered by many to be the "unbreakable" milestone in baseball's live-ball era. Cy Young's career wins (511) and career complete games (749) totals are completely out of reach as are Walter Johnson's 110 career shutouts and Old Hoss Radbourn's 59 wins in 1884. There are some achievements that may be tied such as 4 HRs in a game or even the back-to-back no-hitters by Johnny Vander Meer but the consistency of a 56-game hitting streak is a feat not even approached my modern players. Cal Ripken's consecutive games played streak is impressive and likely "unbreakable" but the great Orioles shortstop only had to play in those games to extend his streak, not get a hit. In the entire history of baseball, there have been only 10 hitting streaks that eclipsed 35 games (and only 3 of these streaks have occurred in the past 50 years) and none of these streaks even reached 75% of The Streak.
