1995 HEADLINE – Cal Ripken Jr. Sets MLB’s Consecutive Game Streak At 2,131 Games!!!

On September 6, 1995, Cal Ripken broke the all-time Major League Baseball record for consecutive games played.  Lou Gehrig’s record stood for an amazing 56 years, but on this day Cal eclipsed his 2,130th consecutive games played streak.

Amazingly he did not miss a single game in 13+ years!!!  We honor you Cal for this amazing baseball record.

  1. An amazing record. According to Wikipedia, as of May 17, 2014 the current MLB consecutive games streak is held by Hunter Pence with 214. I hate to be cynical, but with the amount of money to be made, why risk playing through a stubbed toe or jammed finger. Most baseball fans are stats oriented to some degree. Take a look at Wikipedia and the top thirty consecutive game streaks of all-time. This will reinforce what an amazing record this is. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Major_League_Baseball_consecutive_games_played_streaks

    • Patrick- This one will never be touched. Way too much put into protecting the investment. And to be honest, I cannot even say that I think a player would care to do something like this. Just look at how many are on pace to play in 162 this year…
