    Between Leiter and Nick Altrock, there are exactly three players... John, Wynn, and Bleuge.

    Between Franco and Wagner, there are four. McGraw, Berra, Crosetti, and Grimes.
    Yes, I know. I never claimed it was four degrees of separation. I tried with Rickey Henderson but in 1979-80 the A's didn't have any old players. Looking back at my otrhers poat I guess I wasn't clear I meant five degres of separation.

    Curt Simmons played with Dutch Leonard (1948 Phils)
    Dutch Leonard played with Dazzy Vance (1935 Dodgers)
    Dazzy Vance played with Honus Wagner (1915 Pirates)
    Wagner Debuted in 1897...
    Again, this takes one more step than it takes to get from Leiter to Altrock.

    We used to call him Leiter fluid when he was the Jays.

    Same here, with Eppa Rixey. I just looked at a few, but I couldn't find a 1912 Rixey teammate starting earlier than 1901.

    There's something very sad about Al Leiter retiring. It's the end of an era.

    No longer can we say that there's somebody in baseball who's only four degrees of seperation from the 1800's.

    Al Leiter played on the 1989 NY Yankees with Tommy John.
    John played on the 1963 Cleveland Indians with Early Wynn.
    Wynn played on the 1939 Washington Senators with Ossie Bleuge.
    Bleuge played on the 1924 Washington Senators with Nick Altrock.
    Altrock played on the 1898 Louisville Colonels.

    Now, we're up to 5. Maybe Robinson Cano can knock it out another 20 years.
    ElHalo,

    We can't Julio Franco back to the 1800s in only four degrees of separation?

    I was sure Leiter would be pitching for a couple more seasons.
