Interesting assements. One correction. Whitey Ford broke Ruth's record for consecutive scoreless innings in a World Series with 33.
The 'evolution' or 'develution' of the game,depending on how you look at it, makes it very difficult to come to conclusions based on pure numbers. I would suggest there has been a development in pitching that so impacted the early to mid 60's that they had to 'lower the mound' to 'make it fair'.
Overall, the game of baseball is probably one that will always evolve technique wise as preparation and technology open doors for study on just how to throw and control the seams and hit a round ball with a round bat.
Baseball is the most scientific of all sports.
