Top Seasons

Winning 100 games in a single season is usually a sign of a great season. Some interesting facts about the 100+ win teams:

  • 33 teams have posted 100+ wins in 12 seasons of play, 22 from the AL and 11 from the NL.
  • Every division except for the NL West has had a 100+ win team.
  • Season 2 was the only season without a 100+ win team in either league.
  • The NL did not have a 100+ win team in season's 2, 6 and 7 (NL won WS Season 6).
  • Of the 33 100+ teams only 5 (15%), two from each league, have won the WS.
  • 2 Wild Card teams have won 100+ teams, both in the AL.
  • The Scranton Schrutes lead the AL with five 100+ seasons.
  • The San Juan Myrmidons lead the NL with four 100+ seasons.
  • The two best records took place in season 12: San Juan (NL-116 wins) and Scranton (114-48).
Below is a list of all 100+ winning seasons. The list is sorted from most wins to least. NL teams are highlighted in blue and AL teams are highlighted in Red.
