Longest Last Name with 1-Point Scrabble Tiles

Once again, my Twitter followers come up with the idea for a fun post:

So, fulfilling my destiny, I took the player file from the Lahman Baseball Database. I then searched for last names longer than eight letters (as in “Iannetta”).  I then took those names and searched for any that did NOT have any non-one-point letters (b,c,d,f,g,h,j,k,m,p,q,v,w,x,y,z).  Here are the results, in length order.
