    Johnny Podres was on the post-season roster in 1965; he just didn't play in the World Series.

    Can you find that on baseball reference?

    No. I don't care what Baseball Reference has. Some of their data is erroneous, and they are slow to correct it (or accept corrections.) Multiple sources (The Sporting News World Series Record Book and Neft/Cohen's The World Series for two) indicate Podres was on the roster but didn't play. The Dodgers used only 20 players in the World Series in 1965. Podres was one of the ones who didn't play.

    That's the last one. Congrats!

    This quote of yours from before made me think of a related trivia question. There are 10 players who have played in the WS on the losing side in at least 5 seasons. (No restriction on whether or not the player was ever on the Yankees with this question.) Marquard is one. Can anyone guess the other 9 without cheating?

    You got 3, including one of the two 6-timers.

    Pee Wee Reese (6: Dodgers 1941, '47, '49, '52-53, '56)
    Carl Furillo (5: Dodgers 1947, '49, '52-53, '56)
    Gil Hodges (5: Dodgers 1947, '49, '52-53, '56)

    Branca and Snider were good guesses -- each of them played on WS-winning teams in 5 seasons, but did not actually play in the WS in one of those seasons.

    6 to go.

    Terry Pendleton lost two with the Cardinals and at least two with the Braves possibly a third.

    Yup.

    Terry Pendleton (5: Cardinals 1985, '87; Braves '91-92, '96)
    Jackie Robinson (5: Dodgers 1947, '49, '52-53, '56)

    Only two players to go. One has 5 seasons, the other 6.

    That is correct.

    Fred Merkle (5: Giants 1911-13; Robins '16; Cubs '18)

    Poor Merkle.

    Only one left....

    Elston Howard was around for those five Yankee losses, plus one more as a member of the 1967 Red Sox.

    Yep he's gotta be the last one. I didn't even think of him. I was thinking of guys from the 1910's or 20's.
