    Yup.

    Jackie Robinson (5: Dodgers 1947, '49, '52-53, '56)

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

    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.
