Franchise Games Leaders - Position Players

Posted by John Autin
Here are the leaders in games played for each current franchise, as compiled by me through the B-R Play Index.


  • "Active" refers to players who played in 2011, whether or not they're still with the team in question.
  • "With team" means they are still under contract with the team in question, reflecting information available on ESPN as of January 27.

For example, Jason Varitek played in 2011 and has not announced his retirement, so he is Boston's "Active" leader; but he is currently a free agent, so David Ortiz is the leader "With team."

I never knew that Clemente, besides finishing with exactly 3,000 hits, played the exact same number of games with Pittsburgh as Honus Wagner.

Also, it's kind of scary to think of Alfonso Soriano as the elder statesman of the Cubs.

Note: The table lists franchises by their current location, but covers the entire franchise history.
