Comments on: 100+ RBI in 3 straight years for OF http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/923 This and that about baseball stats. Tue, 16 Jul 2013 17:01:55 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.6 By: JohnnyTwisto http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/923/comment-page-1#comment-5790 Sun, 14 Dec 2008 06:24:40 +0000 http://www.baseball-reference.com/sotd/?p=923#comment-5790 I actually don't believe you can search directly for a streak like that. But the PI has so many facets, I think it's a good reminder that it can be helpful if the posters explain how they do their searches. (And if it is possible to search for a streak, explain it to me!)

However, you can search for the most 100-rbi seasons in a career. Ruth, Gehrig, and Foxx all had 13, and as it happens, Gehrig and Foxx put up theirs in 13 consecutive seasons. You do that search on the Batting Season Finder. Where it says Choose a Stat, select RBI >= 100, and Get top 200 seasons or careers sorted by Players W/ Years.

This article got me thinking, what is the longest streak of seasons with 100+ RBI in a row? I don't know how I would look that up in the PI, so if anyone could let me know how I would do that, or just what the record is, that would be great.

I was even more surprised to see that in 2008 alone there were only 9 outfielders with 100+ RBI. Considering that, 5 in the last 3 years isn't bad.
