Did you know that Wilt Chamberlain once averaged more minutes per fame than there are minutes in an NBA game? His average was 48.5 minutes per game in 1961-1962. This basically evens out to hims playing every minute of every fame, including every minute of overtime. No one has beaten his record to this day.

Did you know that Fernando Tatis is the only player as of the book's publishing to ever hit 2 grand slams in one inning? He set the MLB record for most RBIs in a single inning!

And how sad is it that I did not realize he was a Cardinals player as I was writing this post? Very sad, very sad indeed! Lol. As previously mentioned, I am not much of a sports fan!

In 1962, Oscar Robertson averaged a triple-double for an entire season, which is an incredible feat in NBA history! *triple doubles is when you achieve double digits in three scoring categories, which is extremely rare in basketball. Lebron James has just a few more triple-doubles in his ENTIRE career than Robertson had in this one season!
