Trivia: Big Unit v. Big Train

Randy Johnson, The Big Unit, has hit 189 batters in his career, which is 3rd all time. That is only 14 fewer than all-time leader Walter Johnson, The Big Train, despite pitching 1800 fewer innings (4127 vs. 5914).

Considering he is 45, it is a long shot that he will overtake The Big Train at 203 hit batters.

The closest active pitcher is 42 year old knuckleballer Tim Wakefield at 172 and 3rd is Pedro Martinez at 137.
