Middle infielders and catchers tend to have shorter careers due to the nature of their position.

However, most superstars play up to twelve to fifteen years. Anything higher is considered to be rare, but is certainly not unheard of.

Careers over twenty years are hard to find.

[ScienceDaily (July 11, 2007) - The average career of a Major League Baseball player is 5.6 years, according to a new study by a University of Colorado at Boulder research team. The study also revealed that one in five position players will have only a single-year career, and that at every point of a player's career, the player's chance of ending his career is at least 11 percent.]
