WagerWeb.com Offer Baseball Record Odds
Records are made to be broken, but the record that Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is going for is one that many thought would stand forever. Rollins is 20 games away from tying the immortal Joe DiMaggio's 56 consecutive game hit streak. Rollins ended last season hitting safely in 36 straight games, and if he can get off to a hot start this season, he, too, could end up in baseball history.
"This is a record that few people thought would ever be challenged," Wagerweb.com's Dave Johnson said. "Rollins has the advantage of having ended last season on a roll and having all off-season to rest and work on his hitting. If Rollins can handle the pressure of chasing one of the most sacred MLB baseball records in history, he could have a really good shot at breaking it."
