Default Greatest one game MLB careers.

I nominate the oldest of the Paciorek boys John. At 18 he got his only game in the majors:

PA's - 5
R - 4
H - 3
RBI - 3
BB - 2
WAR - .2
BA - 1.000
OBP - 1.000
SLG - 1.000
OPS - 2.000

Side note, they've got to be the only set of three brothers whose careers each started in a different decade.

Who you got?

Well, the story is more interesting than the reality. He was a lousy hitter in the minors, not even sure why he got the call-up at 18. He did have two seasons where he hit respectably, not great, but possibly with some potential, at age 22 and 23, but instead of progressing at age 24 his numbers tumbled again and that was his last year.

I have to say I am more intrigued by the fact that his MLB appearance was 1963, Tom's first appearance was 1970 and Jim's was 1987, you'd think they were Jim's father and uncle, not his brothers!

Sortable (not all stats) list for batters:

Hard to argue with Paciorek, just isn't enough to compare against with such small amount of stats.

Here's pitchers, would probably be Chris Saenz...

Funny thing was I found Paciorek when my brother and I were talking about the most All-Stars on a Multi Rookie Topps Card. I said the record was 4 (not naming the card in case I want to use it as a trivia question some time), and the only three I could think of was Baker, Baylor, Paciorek. I wasn't positive Tom had made one so I looked him up and that's when I found out he had an older brother in addition to his baby brother that I knew about.

Eddie Gaedell played in one game, in his only at bat he drew a walk (like he was supposed to), and then was removed for a pinch runner.
