Answer: Marquis Grissom

Marquis Grissom began his Major League Baseball career in 1989 at the age of 22 for the Montreal Expos. The outfielder ended his stint with the Expos with two all-star appearances in 1993 and 1994 before coming over to the Atlanta Braves. 

Grissom was only in a Braves jersey for the 1995 and 1996 seasons but he made the most of his time. In 297 games, he had a batting average of .286 to go along with 35 home runs and 116 runs batted in. He displayed his speed by swiping 57 bags in this stretch. 

Marquis Grissom played 17 seasons in the big leagues and his time with the Atlanta Braves was the only time he was a part of a World Series winner (1995). Grissom is one of those players who only spent two seasons with the Braves but feels like more because of the feats accomplished during that time.
