The MLB's Longest hitless streak


MLB'S LONGEST HITLESS STREAK
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who has the longest hitless streak in Major League Baseball?

On July 29, 1909 William Aloysius "Bill" Bergen stepped up to bat for the Brooklyn Dodgers and got a hit, his last before setting the record for the longest hitless streak for a position player ever.

Bill Bergen's next hit would not come until July 17, 1909, setting the streak at 46 at bats without a hit.

Lucky for Bill, he has been outdone by a pitcher.

Bob Buhl's hitless streak spans 2 teams and 3 seasons including the entire 1962 season which he spent with the Milwaukee Braves and Chicago Cubs.

During the the 1962 season Bob Buhl went an unimpressive 0 for 70 in his trips up to the plate. Add on a few hitless at bats the season prior and following  and his record setting streak is a lumbering 0 for 87 (0-88 by some sources).
