Chicago Cubs: While some baseball history buffs likely know these records, some casual fans might be surprised to see what kind of records former Cubs players hold.

With no baseball being played right now, it is the perfect time to check out the old baseball record books to help fill the void. Since there are so many elements to baseball, the number of different records out there is tough to count. Some records are standard like home runs, RBIs, strikeouts, etc. while others are either more obscure or very specific.

Some of these accomplishments more recent, while others were set a long time ago before any of us were born. Regardless of when they happened, some of these records did not get the attention they arguably deserved.
