College Baseball

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present "The Colleges", an ongoing research project that lists every player from specific colleges who appeared in at least one college baseball game and made it to the major league level.

This menu represents the third phase of the college baseball project. The first phase was college data on the player's biographical pages, the second phase are pages dedicated to each college — with the first linking to the second and vice versa as they are being created & the third phase is the grouping of the individual college pages along side other college baseball related pages.

Menu Notes: Actual / historical college names are used inside of each page below AND on each player's bio. Example: Texas A&M University was once called Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas. The latter will be found on the Texas A&M page below and each player who attended during that timeframe will have the latter / proper school name also.

"Finding a college is a research project. You must gather information, as well as supply it to others, but the most important thing to keep in mind, however, is that your son must go to a college where he can play." - Assistant General Manager of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays Mickey White

College Baseball



The college baseball project started in 2003 courtesy of ground breaking research done by Rick Benner. Since then, Baseball Almanac has added college data to nearly nine-thousand former Major League ballplayer biographies and cross-linked them into the two-hundred plus college specific pages featured on the menu above.

Do you know of a college that a former player attended AND played baseball at which we do not have on file (PLEASE review the player's biography first)? Send corrections to Baseball Almanac .

This page — and every upcoming college alumni page — can be sponsored by a company, an individual, a fellow college teammate, a college alumnus, or similar party. If you are interested please contact us today . If the college page is not yet on the list above, let us know and we'll move it forward on our to-do list.
