In the 100-plus year history of Major League Baseball, only a handful of players have managed to play their entire careers for the same franchise.
As you would expect, free agency and trades are to blame for this rarest of feats in professional baseball these days.
Of all the players to ever don a major league uniform, there were only 62 (retired) players according to the Elias Sports Bureau that completed their careers while never leaving the team with which they began their career.
Thirty-five of those players are members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Currently there are six players of note that have a significant chance of joining this group of players.
Here are the 50 greatest players to play for only one franchise, including a few of the current hopefuls.
If I overlooked a player that you feel deserves to be on this list, please let me know in the comment section.
