Ray Grimes had an RBI in 17 consecutive games for the Cubs in 1922. Billy Williams scored a run in 24 straight games for Phillies in 1894.

Billy Williams is a lot older than I thought. 8-o

while I whole-heartedly believe that .406 is the more impressive and more impactful stat, i cannot discount 56 as anything short of a great achievement.

it is not luck, but true skill that got him to 56.

first of all it must be noted how far ahead 56 is then the next closest streak. 45. thats 9 full games better.. which is an extrordinary amount when viewed in context of where the next best streaks are.

and to show that this wasn't some random occurance of some player that got lucky.. well just look at the caliber of player it takes to make this list..

willie keeler, pete rose, gerge sisler, ty cobb, paul molitor.. (I think thats everyone that had 40, but am not sure it's completely accurate. someone can look it up if they have a moment.)

Molitor only got to 39 - the missing member of the club is...

Take a look at the players who have batted over .375 in the past 75 years. Fairly elite list of hitters there as well

Joe Dimaggio
Stan Musial
Tony Gywnn
George Brett
Luke Appling
Rod Carew
Earl Averill
Ted Williams X2
Larry Walker

it's an incredible mixture of luck and talent to get a hit streak that long. there's no way you can attribute it solely to one or the other.

btw, what do you guys think is more impressive: williams' .406 average or bonds' .609 OBP? the next highest OBP (other than bonds' own .582) was williams .553 from the year he hit .406. i think it's safe to say nobody will ever approach a .600 OBP again whereas a .400 average, while insanely difficult, seems more doable.
