The most unbreakable records in MLB history: 232 Walks in one season
Barry Bonds was in the midst of terrorizing the majors. It seemed as though every time he made his way up to the mound, the ball was bound to leave the park.
Bonds, of course, holds the major league record for home runs with 762. Although he was a great hitter, managers around the league were attempting to find ways around dealing with him at the plate.
On the heels of his fifth straight season with at least 45 home runs, including a major league record, 73, Bonds was having his normal terrific year for the San Francisco Giants in 2004. He finished off his season with 45 home runs, 101 RBIs and he led the league in several categories, including: batting percentage, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage.
The one statistic that stood out the most and will likely never be broken in major league history, is the 232 walks he aggregated during the year. Interestingly enough, the next closest person to Bonds is Bonds himself as he racked up 198 two years prior. Outside of those two seasons, the next closest is…Bonds. he registered 177 in 2001.
No one has come closer than 62 walks. Meaning, it’s going to be nearly impossible for anyone to pass Bonds and the 232 he piled up in 2004.
