Unbreakable Records in Sports
10. Glenn Hall played 502 consecutive complete games
At number 10 of Unbreakable Records in Sports, All hail the epic ‘Mr. Goalie’ who managed to play 502 consecutive complete games spanning over eights season (beginning from the 1955-56 season till 1962). Beat that people! Hall was also the first goaltender who developed and made effective use of the butterfly style of goaltending. A man dedicated to his passion, we must say! Till date many believe that Glen Hall was the greatest goalkeeper to have ever played the game.
9. Joe DiMaggio’s 56 consecutive game hitting streak
At number 9 of Unbreakable Records in Sports, In one of those epic baseball records of all time, Joe DiMaggio began his unbeatable streak in the Yankee Stadium with a single and an RBI against the White Sox. It occurred in the year 1951 and the baseball fans went gaga over him. So much so that the Les Brown Orchestra even created a tune “Joltin’ Joe DiMaggio” to honour the New York Yankee. Obviously the tune was a great hit.
Also nicknamed ‘Joltin’ Joe’ and ‘The Yankee Clipper’ DiMaggio retired at the peak of his career (in 1951) while ranking fifth in career home runs and sixth in career slugging percentage. He was 37 years old at the time of his retirement.
8. Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game
At number 8 of Unbreakable Records in Sports,When NBA was not even a major sports league and was struggling tooth and nail to compete against college basketball, an exceedingly tall bloke (of 7ft 1 inch) named Wilt Chamberlain made a jaw-dropping record of scoring 100 points at the Hershey Sports Arena in Pennsylvania. As far as the NBA history is concerned he is the only man to have score 100 points in a single NBA game or average more than 40 and 50 points in a season. Held on March 2, 1962, Philadelphia Warriors had a 169–147 win over the New York Knicks thanks to Chamberlain.
Interestingly he was called by a couple odd names ranging from ‘Goliath’ and ‘Wilt the Stilt’ (which he hated) to ‘The Big Dipper’ (which he preferred and which actually refers to the dipping of his head whenever he tried to walk through a door way).
