BOB LEMON (1920-2000), a six-time 20-game winner, made the All-Star team for seven consecutive seasons (1948-1954). HANK AARON, the all-time career leader in home runs (755), made 23 All Star teams in a row (1954-1976). His long-time Braves teammate WARREN SPAHN won 20-games a record-tying 13 times and appeared in 14 All-Star games. Seven-time All-Star LOU BOUDREAU (1917-2001) was MVP in 1948, assisting teammate Lemon on a drive to the Cleveland Indian's most recent of two World Championships. JIM "CATFISH" HUNTER (1946-1999) was an eight-time All Star and postseason veteran with the A's and Yankees.
