Answer: Nick Markakis

Nick Markakis began his MLB career in 2006 at the age of 22. He stayed very consistent throughout his time in the big leagues, hitting .288 with 189 home runs and 1,046 runs batted in. 

Markakis did not hit below .250 in any season. He also racked up three Gold Glove Awards thanks to his impressive defensive efforts. After the Covid season of 2020, Markakis decided it was time to hang up the cleats. He was the definition of “play your game and let the rest fall into place.”
