One Team Players Quiz
January 4, 2005


There are two new lists at Baseball Evolution - the One Team Players and the Have Glove Will Travel Team. As you look through the One Team Players, which for those who are barely paying attention is made up of players who only played for one team, you may be surprised to find some players conspicuously absent. You may be surprised to not see such players as Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Babe Ruth, whom you were sure played exclusively for the Braves, Giants, and Yankees, respectively.

In order to help you navigate those players who you may be wondering about, take the following quiz to test your knowledge of players who played most of their careers with one team, but either began or ended (or in one case, both) with teams other than those for which they are known.
