In today's era of free agency and high franchise turnover, it's rare to see players stay in one place for very long.
Long gone are the days of Mickey Mantle, Brooks Robinson, Al Kaline, Alan Trammell, and even Bernie Williams.
This list will celebrate the players that have been with their current team the longest. This will include players that not only have played with just one team, but also those that began their careers in another place, but found a permanent home with their current team.
A quick shout-out to Cot's Baseball Contracts, a clearinghouse for MLB contract information, and the source of any contract information in this list. Also thanks to the great people at Baseball-Reference, simply the best place to find baseball stats anywhere.
Keep an eye out for the National League's Longest Tenured Players, coming soon to a computer near you.
This list and the stats included within are as of August 13, 2009.
Find a mistake? Have a thought on what this list will look like in a few years? Well, let me know in the comments!
