Pitcher Win 30+ Games in a Season Four Times

Picture of a BaseballTrivia Question

Since 1900, who is the only major league pitcher to win 30 or more games in a season four or more times?

Trivia Question Answer

Pitcher Christy Mathewson of the New York Giants won 30 or more games four times in 1903 (30), 1904 (33), 1905 (31) and 1908 (37). Since 1900, he is the only major league pitcher to win 30 or more games in a season four times and was the first to do it three years in a row.

Cy Young misses out on the honor since three of his five 30+ win seasons happened in the 1800s (1892 – 36, 1893 – 34, 1895 – 35, 1901 – 33, 1902 – 32).

In the 1800s many pitchers had 30+ win seasons four or more times.
