Jeter's at 32... Whats the record for ABs without a hit?

Postby MLBfanatic04 » Wed Apr 28, 2004 10:44 pm

Does anyone know if hes coming close to a record, I don't care if the record is 80, as a red sox fan, its good to see a yankee "captain" chasing the wrong type of fame. I was just wondering, anyone know what the record is?

I'm not sure what his record was, but he had broken it prior to today's game.

Jimmy Wynn also went hitless in 32 AB's with the Yankees in 1977.

Jeter has a chance to break that illustrious effort tomorrow against Zito :-)

the actual all-time MLB record of 88 was set by Bob Buhl, Braves and then Cubs pitcher in 1962 and 63 seasons... he had 70 AB's without a hit in '62 to finish the season and then went 0-18 to start the 63 season.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

Oh I know the answer to that. LOL. You know why? Because it is held by a Mets pitcher. Had to look up the details: Randy Tate, 1975, 0-41. Also owns the record for consecutive PAs without a hit, 0-47. :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Ok Tate's record (tied by Miguel Batista) is the longest in a single season.

[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million

How about for a hitter, not a hitting pitcher?
