There are 162 regular season games. If a player is on a team that qualifies for the postseason, then he will have played in those additional games as well. If a player played in every single regular-season game, and played in every postseason game, assuming all the series went the maximum games, a player could conceivably play 181 games in a season. One could even count the All-Star game, to say technically he played in 182 games. This answer is incorrect. MLB does not count postseason records toward a players yearly or career stats. They are separate. If you check this link, you'll see the career leaders for games played. A couple have hit 164 or 165, and a few have hit 163. http://www.baseball-reference.com/leaders/G_season.shtml The correct answer to this question is a little complicated. If a game is tied after 5 innings and is then stopped (rained out, etc.) the stats count for the players. However, the game still needs to be made up. This is only in a tie after 5 innings. If one team leads, the game is official and counts toward the standings. But if the game is tied, after 5 innings, and the game is stopped, the players' stats count (including games played), but the game is still made-up at a later date. Thus, is a player plays in all the other games, he can get credit for 163 games played. Also, if the top two teams in a division are tied after the 162nd game, a 1 game playoff is needed to determine the final standings in the division. All stats are counted. This most recently happened in 2008 with the Chicago White Sox and the Minnesota Twins.

An individual game is one that requires only one player. Multi-player games are games played with more than one player.

This can happen if a player is traded during the season. If his previous team has already played more games than his new team, he may have appeared in more total games than his current team has played.

The player that played more games as a Boston Red Sox than anybody is Carl Yastrzemski.

He got traded from a team that had already played more games (at the time of the trade) than the team he is being traded to. Quite simply, this player now plays for a team that has more games left to complete than his old club. Therefore, he is able to play over 82 games.

Mike Schmidt with 2404 games. Only one player in Phillies history has played more than 2000 games for the team and that is Schmidt. There have been a few players that played the majority of their career with the Phillies and played in over 2000 games total but not 2000 with the Phillies. Tony Taylor played in 1669 games with the Phillies and 2195 games total. Richie Ashburn played in 1794 games with the Phillies and 2189 games total. Sherry McGee played in 1521 games for the Phillies and 2087 games total. Cy Williams played in 1463 games with the Phillies and 2002 games total.

Ed Kranepool, who played for the Mets throughout his entire 18-year career, appeared in 1853 games from 1962 to 1979. He holds the record by a considerable margin; Bud Harrelson is second, having played 1322 games for the Mets.

yes. a person who has never played baseball can know more ABOUT it than a mlb player but this does not mean that if you were asked to play you could do it well. there is more to baseball than knowledge there is also skill, both are important but they rely on each other

True. Parish's 21 seasons (1976-1997) and 1,611 games played are NBA all time records.

It's two different things. a portable game player that allows you to play less complex games without a TV and a Console played that plays more complex games than a PSP but is not portable. A PS2 is also cheaper than a PSP which is designed to work with a PS3

Swimming is the hardest sport. You do more kicks than a soccer player, more flips than a cheerleader, more sets than a volleyball player, and more yards than a football player.
