University of California, Irvine Baseball Players Who Made it to the Major Leagues

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

"This (playing baseball) is something I've been doing since I was 11 years old. It hasn't been easy. I've had my share of injuries - elbows, shoulders - and every year it seems like I've got to prove all over again that I can get guys out. But this is my passion. It's what I enjoy. If they let me play until I'm 50, I'll play until I'm 50." - Doug Linton in Omaha World Herald (April 24, 2004)
