* - The Wrigley and Fenway records can't be confirmed, but there isn't much chance Wakefield's 80 has been beaten by anyone. Roger Clemens is the only other Red Sox pitcher who hit over 80 batters in his career, and he only had 41 at Fenway, including his time with Toronto and the Yankees. On the Wrigley record, Charlie Root hit 73 batters for the Cubs between 1926 and 1941, which is one more than Zambrano's total, so their's a good chance he could have done better than Zambrano's 43 hit batters at home.

Many of these records are very breakable this season. The Miller Park record was broken on Wednesday when Dave Bush passed Ben Sheets, but Sheets has 18 so he could easily get the record back in his next home start. Kevin Correia is 1 hit batter away from Jason Schmidt's record at AT&T park. John Lannan's record at Nationals stadium has three other players within 2 plunks of it. And if Pedro Martinez re-signs with the Red Sox and hits 44 batters at Fenway Park, he'll tie Wakefields total. It could happen. Paul Maholm is only two plunks behind Kip Wells PNC Park record too.
