    He’ll probably break this record by Opening Day 2013.

      Don’t know why you set the cutoff at 1920. Going back to 1901 in the AL, Jeter is still 3rd.

      Personally I hope this is a record Jeter doesn’t get. I hope that by opening day 2013 Jeter will be playing 3B—heck, I hope he’s playing 3B opening day 2012—with A-Rod as the every day DH. I think the more important record is the most games played as a Yankee (2,401 by Mickey Mantle) which Jeter will break this year sometime after collecting his 3,000th hit.

      Play Index only has game data going back to 1920. And, that’s what I used – asking it to show me players who appeared at SS in an AL game, ranked by most games.

      You have to wonder, if, at any time during these contract talks did New York and Jeter exchange thoughts about him moving off SS before the deal is done…
