Fred Clark, Louisville Colonels (1895)
Ty Cobb, Detroit Tigers (1917)
George Sisler (1924-25)
Luis Castillo, Marlins (2002)
Chase Utley, Phillies (2006)

Five different players have compiled streaks that lasted 35 games total. Clarke was a premier hitter in his time -- batting over .300 in 11 different seasons -- and was inducted to the Hall of Fame in 1945. For Cobb and Sisler, this was only the second-longest hitting streak of their careers (Cobb made it to 40 games in 1911, and Sisler made it to 41 games in 1922). Castillo's streak is the longest ever by a Latin player and is tied for the longest ever by a second baseman with Chase Utley.
