Everybody's Got A Record: Brooks Robinson and Carl Yastrzemski Edition

**In this series we strive to prove the universal truth that every baseball player holds some kind of record.**

This next record is a great one because it is held by two of baseball's best players. The record itself is also one that we hope all players strive to break in their career: most consecutive seasons with one team. The record is held by both Brooks Robinson and Carl Yastrzemski with 23 seasons with one team. Brooks set the record first by playing from 1955 to 1977 with the Orioles. Yaz tied the record six season later retiring in 1983 after playing with the Red Sox since 1961.

The player with the current longest streak is Chipper Jones who has been with the Braves since 1993 making 2011 his 18th season.
