Records hold a special place in the hearts and minds of baseball fans. Some records approach mythical status... Cy Young's 511 wins, Joe DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak, Nolan Ryan's 7 no-hitters and Rickey Henderson's 1,406 career stolen bases are just a few examples. One for the Books explores the stories behind the records of the Game.
