Another example here is (Closer) Lindy McDaniel (1960) --  teammates could look like this  for example (1B) -- 1956 Stan Musial , (3B) 1956 Ken Boyer (teammates on 1956 Cardinals) --- (P) -- 1966 Juan Marichal, (P) -- 1966 Gaylord Perry , (P) 1966 Bobby Bolin, (CF) 1966 Willie Mays ( all were teammates on the 1966 Giants with Lindy McDaniel). As well the last 4 spots on your roster can be whoever you want as long as they are not someone's exclusive closer. Here is a complete list of teams Lindy McDaniel played for and years listed below in the link.
