re: Brian McCann to Hank Aaron----6 degrees of Kevin Bacon esque
Keith Olbermann had a deal like that taking it back to the first professional game in the 1800s.


Edit. I looked it up. This is from 1997.


He's out there somewhere in spring training. He's probably 20 or 21, maybe 22. And he will retire in the year 2016 He will be the grand old man of baseball. And they will say he's so old that the year he broke in, Eddie Murray was still playing. And he will become the ninth man.
Eddie Murray is the eighth man. When he broke in, Brooks Robinson was still playing. And when Robinson broke in, Bob Feller was still playing. And when Feller broke in, Rogers Hornsby was still playing. And when Hornsby broke in, Honus Wagner was still playing. And when Wagner broke in, Cap Anson was still playing. And when Anson broke in, Dickey Pearce was still playing. And when Pearce broke in, Doc Adams was still playing.
Adams played for the Knickerbocker club in the first organized game of baseball in 1846, number one of the eight men whose careers cover the 152 seasons since.
And somewhere out there is the ninth man.

Jeter -> Mattingly (95) Mattingly -> Guidry (82) Guidry -> Munson (75) Munson -> Pepitone (69) Pepitone -> Berra (62) Berra -> DiMaggio (46)

DiMaggio played with Gehrig, who played with Ruth. Or am I missing something?
