The most unbreakable records in MLB history: 191 RBIs in a single season

There’s never been a player who registered at least 200 RBIs in a given season. But, Hack Wilson was as close as anyone will get.

Back in 1930, the Hall of Fame Centerfielder Wilson dominated the league in every possible way. He registered a batting average of .356, knocked 56 homers, leading the league, and more importantly, the reason why we’re all here, Wilson racked up 191 RBIs.

Second place Lou Gehrig isn’t that far behind, he registered 185 in 1931. But that feels like an anomaly. In more recent memory, no one has come close to Wilson’s record. In 2007, Alex Rodriguez did register 156. Outside of him, there isn’t a single player from the 21st century that ranks in the top 40.

With baseball more predicated on the long ball as opposed to players attempting to register a hit, it’s going to be an incredibly long time until someone breaks this record.
