Here are the DII baseball records we think will never be broken

Not a question I had ever considered asking, but some of these are pretty neat. One example:

The final score was 71-1 and that was after only four innings. St. Francis, a dual member of the NAIA and DII baseball, jumped all over Robert Morris, and they did it quickly forcing them to surrender after four innings. Here are just some of the more eye-popping numbers from that game that still stand as single-game records:

  10: Triples in a game
  11: Bases on balls in an inning
  26: Runs in an inning
  44: Hits in a game
  53: RBI in a game (due to 16 errors, not every run was an official RBI)
  70: largest margin of victory

Brian Mazurek had himself a day to remember. St. Francis got 71 players to cross home plate and only one came via the long ball, which was hit by Mazurek on his way to the cycle. But he entered the DII baseball record books with nine RBI in a single inning.

Poll of 70 big leaguers reveals what they value to gauge performance

When you look at your stats at the end of a given year to evaluate yourself, what number do you gravitate toward and why?

We didn’t get any Wins Above Replacement votes (“I still wish I understood WAR,” Orioles center fielder Adam Jones said.), but we did get a handful of “team wins” votes, which we will strike from the record because they run counter to the emphasis here on the individual.

In some cases, we didn’t get a vote at all.

“I hate ‘em all,” Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson said, “because there’s always another stat that will make you look bad.”
