Description by

Everyone remembers Nolan Ryan's no-hitters, but few realize that he had a dozen one-hitters. Roger Maris's record-setting 61 homers is a part of every baseball fan's memory; Jimmie Foxx's 58 home runs in 1932 are largely forgotten.

The stories of 12 near-record breaking performances are recounted here, such as Bill Terry's 254 hits in a season, three short of the record; Pedro Guerrero reaching base safely in 14 consecutive at-bats, two shy of Ted Williams' mark; and Pete Rose's 44-game hit streak, tying Willie Keeler's mark. Boxscores and tables capsulize the players' efforts.
