Hall of Famer Tris Speaker, whose career spanned 1907-1928, is the MLB career leader in doubles with 792.
I'm not sure about the total by one team... but the most total by one player was Orel Hershiser of The Dodgers when he went 59 innings in a row without giving up a run.
AnswerMost consecutive shutout innings pitched by a team: In the National League, the Pittsburgh Pirates, 56 innings, from 6-01-1903 to 6-09-1903. In the American League, the Baltimore Orioles, 54 innings, from 9-01-1974 to 9-07-1974.
The 1969 Mets finished off that season throwing 4 consecutive shutouts and 3 of them against the Phils before ending the season against the Cubbies. I think at that time it was the record for one team throwing consecutive shutout inning against another.
Yes an error counts as an at bat, but not a hit. You would be 0 for 1 on the play, but your on base percentage goes up because you have reached base safely. Errors can be committed on sacrifice bunts and sacrifice flies. If the official scorer rules a play a sacrifice bunt/fly and an error, the batter is not charged with a time at bat. On base percentage goes down when reaching base on an straight error.
== == Ed Morris had 12 in 1886, which is the AA record for Lefthanders Sandy Koufax had 11 in 1963, which is the NL record for Lefthanders The American League record for shutouts in a season by a southpaw is 9 and held by Ron Guidry of the Yankees (1978) and Babe Ruth of the Red Sox (1916).
because most people are right handed and when they hit the ball the run straight to first base...if you ran toward third base, you would have to turn backwards!!
