The Killer B's of Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell are often held up as oddities in the era of free-agency, with 14 and 11 years, respectively, playing with one team. What two players hold the record for most years with a single team? (the players played for different teams, BTW)

That's a roger on Yastrzemski. Yaz played 23 seasons with the Boston Red Sox, coming up in 1961 as the heir apparent to Ted Williams.

Yount only played 20 seasons with the Brewers.

Steve Carlton played for 24 seasons, it's true. But only 14.5 with Philadelphia. Kaline, as you noticed, is also incorrect. Close, but not quite enough seasons.

Incidentally, the correct player was one of the first people (after Banks and Musial) that I thought of as correct answers to the Al Kaline question, despite an underwhelming lifetime BA of .267, and only 268 career HR's. Also, I'm not sure if he had a team-related nickname, but my point is that he had a couple of seasons batting above .300, he was something of a slugger, and he's not someone really obscure.

Brooks Robinson, I think. I don't think he ever played for anyone but the Orioles and he was around for a long time!

There you go! Score the second run for timkell. ;-D As chuck said to me in an email, Brooks was so quiet that people tend to forget him. He was a decent hitter, but was obviously known more for his glove. Personally, the only thing I really remember about him is that he played a damn long time for the Orioles. :-D
