Editorial Reviews

More than any other sport, baseball is a game of numbers. Statistics and records help measure the greats of the game against their peers – against generations – and this ever-evolving record book is what helps give baseball renewed life. But not every mark in the game is destined to change, for there are but a few that are indeed unbreakable. Legendary pitcher Roger Clemens narrates Baseball’s Most Unbreakable Feats DVD, a detailed look at 10 seemingly untouchable baseball achievements.

"Baseball's Most Unbreakable Feats" looks at the ten most unbreakable feats in baseball as determined by a vote of players and managers. There are career marks like Nolan Ryan's 5,714 strikeouts, Pete Rose's 4,256 hits, Cy Young's 511 wins, and Rickey Henderson's 1406 stolen bases. There are also streaks, from Cal Ripken, Jr.'s 2,632 consecutive games played and Eric Gagne's 84 consecutive saves to the New York Yankees winning five World Series in a row and Joe DiMaggio hitting safely in 56 games. Finally, there are single season marks, with Ted Williams being the last to bat .400 in a season, Bob Gibson having an E.R.A. of 1.12, and Henderson stealing 130 bases in a single season. Hosted by Roger Clemens, several dozen baseball players past and present share their thoughts on the achievement and the likelihood of it being unbreakable before the results are released to establish the order of the top 10.

While it is fun to see major leaguers "do the math" to explain why nobody is going to win 511 games, what I appreciated more were the attempts to explain why things have changed in the sport to make some of these records unbreakable (e.g., pitchers using the slide-step to keep base runners close, lowering the pitching mound). The star quotient is a bit more on the players from the past, from Ted Williams and George Brett to Joe Garagiola and Bob Gibson, than it is for current stars in terms of the talking heads that pop up, but there are a few current stars (e.g., Johan Santana) and future Hall of Famers (e.g., Mike Piazza) who share their thoughts.

If you add up the percentage figures given for these 10 feats they add up to 211. It seems that the players were asked to vote for three of the feats on the list they were presented with and there were more than 10 on that list.

I know there are many shows about baseball records & feats, but this one is a pleasure to watch. It does not cover all records nor do I agree with all of it, but this show is addictive. It is well made and fun to watch. The production is top notch and the music great. I have watched it 3 times already and if the boys have it on when I get home, I would watch it over again. A must for any baseball fan and a great addition to my collection.

With lots of brief interviews, this video ably recaps why the feats herein rated are deemed 'unbreakable.' The ranking itself leans in favor of recent feats, which is understandable since only recent and current MLBers are interviewed, not historians or statisticians. Clemens serves as an amiable host.

Baseball records seem to hold more weight to me than the other sports I watch. Tackling the subject of unbreakable records really interests me - its the things we always talked about as amateur viewers - what could be broken, who has a chance and what records will never be surpassed and why. Its great to see a video attempt to rank these records by difficulty to obtain - also gives a modern player prospective with interviews sharing their comments. Great video if you are a numbers baseball fan.
