After the 2003 Detroit Tigers had a 43 win-119 loss season i remember reading in the newspaper that if in 2004, they tied the record for single season improvement they still would not have a winnning record. I rember working back and calculating that if they tied that record they would have a .500 record (81-81) Therefore even though i didnt remember the actual number, by remebering all of those other facts, I can work backwords and figure out with a calculator that the record is 38.

As far as I've researched, Cy Young, a Hall of famer (1937 electee) and the all time leader in wins with 511, had an 18 win increase from 1890 to 1891 from 9 wins to 27. Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson went from 0 wins in 1900 (0-3 record) to 20 wins in 1901 (20-17 record), a 20 win increase. Hall of Famer Jack Chesbro went from 21 wins in 1903 (21-15 record) to 41 wins in 1904 (41-12 record), a 20 win increase. I don't know that baseball keeps this record but there are probably others, especially in the 1800s when pitchers pitched every day or other day, that have a higher increase than those listed here.
