Is this a joke?

56 by Joe D. in 1941 - every Yankee fan, if not every baseball fan, knows that!

It's gotta be a trick?

Are you including all professional leagues (Japan, etc...)?

I should have said "professional" record. It is not the Ml record.

That would also be Joe D. 61 games w/ San Francisco in 1933.

Ok the answer is Joe Wilhoit who hit in 69 straight games for wichita jobbers of the western league in 1919.
