Hate to say it, but I didn't know the answer myself, when I posted this, just wanted to see if anyone did. But I was curious so I e-mailed SABR about it.
Here's the answer:

Shortstop George Pinckney of Brooklyn (in the American Association)played 577 consecutive games from September 20, 1885- May 7, 1890. How was his streak stopped? Someone spiked him, and he couldn't play for 8 days afterwards.

Thought you guys would be interested to know that.:cool:

Thanks Penguin. I knew that. I just wanted to see if anyone else did. Watch those spikes, ouch!
