    You got it. He's the last one.

    Elston Howard (6: Yankees 1955, '57, '60, '63-64; Red Sox '67)

    Thanks for playing!

    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.

    Fred Merkle....lost with three different teams. I did look up NY Giants and thats how I came across his name.
    That is correct.

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

    Poor Merkle.

    Only one left....

    That they did. Two more down.

    Whitey Ford (5: Yankees 1955, '57, '60, '63-64)
    Mickey Mantle (5: Yankees 1955, '57, '60, '63-64)

    Jackie Robinson would have to be another.

    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.

    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.

    That's the last one. Congrats!

    On a side note Rube Marquard lost 5.
    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?

    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.
