So can one of these streaks be broken by merely playing a different position? For example, could Parrish have gotten an RBI in a twelfth straight game but lost his streak by doing it at third base? Or would the streak remain intact but not continue, because the RBI came at a different position?

He came in during one game during that "streak" as a pinch hitter or whatever. For the games that he started, then yes it is 8 games.

Maybe Ray Grimes? Either way, it's pretty shocking that such a record would be held by someone I've never heard of.

How odd that the record at most positions is 11 games.

And surprising that a catcher would have the post-'54 record, though of course positional generalities don't mean much when you talk about individuals.
