4. Mickey Doolan, 1905-1913 Phillies

The reason Doolan edges Dave Bancroft is that he was a Phillie longer; nine of his 13 big-league seasons were spent in Philadelphia.

Doolan was the lightest hitter on this list; he never hit more than two home runs in a season, bringing his career total to 15. However, he was a durable fixture on the team; his 1,302 games played ranks 20th in franchise history.

However, he was an excellent defensive shortstop; in franchise history, his 14.1 dWAR ranks fifth all-time, and third among shortstops.

Doolin went on to play for the Baltimore Terrapins and Chicago Whales of the shortlived Federal League, before returning to MLB to play for the Chicago Cubs, New York Giants, and Brooklyn Robins (now Dodgers).
