The major league baseball season is a real grind. There are 162 games in about 185 days (give or take) and that includes travel time, not to mention spring training and the postseason. It's a marathon. Players need to keep chugging along, working through illness and injury while they strive for peak performance. Ability is critical, but if a team isn't durable, it's headed for a long season.
Everyone knows that Baltimore Orioles Cal Ripken
Jr. holds the major league record for consecutive games played with 2,632. But what is the Minnesota Twins record for most consecutive games played and who holds the record? The Twins record for consecutive games played stands at 319, less than two full season. You may be surprised to learn that the record holder is still playing for the Twins today.
