Listing 27 MLB records that will never be broken
Joe DiMaggio reminds us that baseball is full of feats that are unlikely to be broken. Think about how difficult it'll be for a hitter to surpass his hitting streak.
Meanwhile, Hack Wilson's 191 RBI season has stood as a record since 1930, while Albert Belle became the first (and only) player to collect 50 doubles and 50 home runs in a season when he did so in 1995. And yet, those are reachable. The same can be said for the 59 consecutive scoreless innings Orel Hershiser tossed from August 1988 to April 1989, and Ichiro Suzuki's 262 hits in 2004.

Ted Williams hit .406 in 1941, making him the last player to reach the .400 mark for a full season. Rogers Hornsby posted a .424 batting average in 1924, which was the highest mark for anyone since the turn of the 20th Century.
Both are likely out of reach, but you never know. Baseball went through an explosion of home runs in the steroid era that rewrote the record books and changed the way the game was played for a decade, so it's possible some other phenomenon could attack batting averages in the future.
Don Larsen's perfect game in the World Series will probably never be touched, though it's theoretically possible that a pitcher could toss two perfect games in a single Fall Classic. After all, there have been back-to-back no-hitters before.
While all these records may possibly be matched or surpassed some day, there are at least 27 MLB records that will never be broken.
