  • Most titles by a non Yankee

    I researched this, so I hope that I got it right. The most championships won by a player, who never played for the Yankees, is 5. It has been done by 3 players. Can you name them?

    I think Eddie Collins has 6, none with the Yankees

    EDIT: Eddie Collins was on 6 WS winning teams, but did not appear in 2 WS that his team won.

          It would have to Eddie Collins and a few guys tied with 4.

            I stand corrected. Eddie Collins did play with 6 non Yankee teams that won. However he only batted 9 times all year for the 29 A's and 3 times all year for the 30 A's. And as you said, he did play the WS those 2 years.

            I'm thinking of 3 players (who were not Yankees) who played for 5 WS winning teams.

                      You are incorrect, but you have guessed the right answer. Barry and McGinnis each have 5 championships, none with the Yankees. However Barry only played in 4 WS, aa did McGinnis.

                        I see them winning only 4 world series championships. When did they win the 5th one?

                          He actually has 5 and you have guessed the 3rd and final player, with 5. Maxvill only played in 4 those series. So, only Collins, Barry, McGinnis, and Maxvill have more than 4 non yankee titles.

                            I dont see any of them playing on 5 WS champion teams.

                            looking at Maxvill now I only see him playing on 1964, 1967 and 1974 WS teams.

                              Gotta give Gene Tenace "The Menace" an honorable mention here ('72-'74 A's, '82 Cardinals)! All 4 of his World Series teams won.
