THE WORLD'S LONGEST
HITTING STREAK

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's longest hitting streak?

69 games, hit by Joe Wilhoit in 1919 in the minors.

The world's longest hitting streak in Major League Baseball history is owned by Joe DiMaggio.

Playing for the Yankees in 1941 the Yankee Clipper hit in 56 consecutive games from May 15 until July 16.

He was stopped by Cleveland's Jim Bagby Jr. on July 17.

Here are some stats for his streak:

  • 91 hit in 223 at bats

  • Hit .408

  • 56 runs

  • 16 doubles

  • Four triples

  • 15 homers

  • 55 RBIs

  • 21 walks

  • five strikeouts

It's an amazing record considering the closest anyone has come since is 44 games by Pete Rose in 1978.

The previous record was 52 games, set by Denny Lyons in 1887, but back then a base on balls was counted as a hit.
