1919 = Blacksox scandal

4256 - most hits (Pete Rose)

2105 - single season rushing record (Eric Dickerson)

56 - longest hit streak (DiMaggio)

420 - was record number of TD passes by Marino - since broken by Favre

215 - Record points season in Hockey - gretsky

That's all I can spot off the top of my head

714 - Babe Ruth's home run total

755 - Hank Aaron's home run total

I'd have to Google the others, and that might be cheating.
