Ted Williams

Most Consecutive Games Reaching Base

Ted Williams

“Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer.”Ted Williams in the 2006 ESPN Baseball Encyclopedia (Pete Palmer, Sterling Publishers)


Ted Williams, the greatest hitter ever, holds one of the most difficult records to break–a consecutive game on-base streak of 84, set in 1949.

No one has really gotten close to breaking this one. Joe DiMaggio holds the 2nd place on this list with 74 consecutive games reaching base in 1941. And, 3rd place belongs to–who else–Ted Williams, with a total of 69 (achieved in 1941).

    Andrew Velasquez just broke the minor leaguer record and is on pace to break Joe’s but of course Joes will still stand with him being in the Major Leagues and Andrew being at A ball.
