Rabbit Maranville

Walter James Vincent Maranville (November 11, 1891 - January 5, 1954), better known as Rabbit Maranville, was a Major League Baseball shortstop. At the time of his retirement in 1935, he had played in a record 23 seasons in the National League, a mark which wasn't broken until 1986 by Pete Rose.

Over his lengthy career, Maranville played for the Boston Braves (1912 - 1920, 1929 - 1933, 1935), Pittsburgh Pirates (1921 - 1924), Chicago Cubs (1925), Brooklyn Robins (1926) and St. Louis Cardinals (1927 - 1928). He retired having compiled a .258 batting average, 1255 runs, 28 home runs, 884 RBI and 291 stolen bases. As a shortstop, he finished his career with a positional record 5,139 putouts. He won his only World Series championship in 1914 as a member of the Braves, and won his only other National League championship in 1928 as a member of the Cardinals.

Maranville was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1954.
