For the baseball players, winning a match is something important. However, among all of those players, the pitchers can be considered as the one who will determine the result of the game. Because of that reason, the pitchers usually have the bigger responsibility in the game; either the team will win or will lose the game. Because of that reason too, the pitcher is the one who will get most of the pride if the team gets the most winning in a season. This is something that happened to Old Hoss Radbourn in the year of 1884.
Radbourn is the holder of the pitcher with the most winnings in the history of American Baseball. That is because he helped his team to win the total of 59 games in that 1884 season. Until this time, that number at is still considered as something undefeated. For your information, there are some reasons why this number is still unbreakable for more than a century. The first one is because of the number of games that the main pitchers play is getting less. In the old times, the main pitcher will always start the game. However, in the modern times, most teams have the secondary pitcher that has the same chance to be a starter.
As an addition to that, winning the game is not as easy as it used to be. With the secondary pitcher and the lower winning chance, the current record of Radbourn that has been stayed for more than a century might not be that easily to be broken. However, there is still a chance that might happen in the future if only there is a baseball team that will only use one pitcher for the whole season. Will that kind of thing really happen in the world of modern American baseball?
