Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive chart of every Princeton University alumni who played baseball at Princeton University AND made it to the Major League level.

"In spite of his academic and intellectual accomplishments, Moe Berg chose a career as an athlete for his love of baseball. Biographers and historians have hypothesized that Berg's entire career as a professional baseball player was merely an elaborate cover for his second occupation as a spy for the United States." - NOVA Online (Atomic Spies)
