Anyway, if you're a pitcher that does complete a 9-inning game of Major
League Baseball and, say, throw 3 strikes in a row every single time a
batter comes to the plate and/or strikes everybody out, that would
automatically equate to a minimum of 81 pitches during the entire game!
But who does that without throwing a single ball/non-strike pitch? Now,
if you'd rather read about how you can strike out on one pitch, go here:
At any rate, the record holder for the least amount of pitches thrown
during a complete 9-inning game is Charley "Red" Barrett (back in 1944),
in which he only threw 58 pitches! Even more funny, is that he had zero
strikeouts! Yep, it's like so much more efficient when they ground or
fly-out on the first pitch, eh? Regardless of how he achieved such a
feat, you can rest assured it will never happen again in Major League
Baseball. Read all the fine details about this nifty little record,
