4. Tony Taylor, Phillies 1960-1971, 1974-76

Tony Taylor was with the Phillies longer than any second baseman on this list, spending 15 of his 19 big-league seasons in Philadelphia.

The two-time Phillie was with the team during their 30-year pennant drought (divisions did not exist until 1969), so there’s no postseason play to speak of. He made one playoff appearance with the Detroit Tigers in between his two Phillies stints.

Nevertheless, Taylor gets a spot on this list because he spent more time at second base than any other infielder in franchise history, 1,669 games, to be precise. His 1,511 hits are second among Phillies second basemen.
