Major League Baseball Players Who Were Born in 1905

"If anybody talks about a dead guy during a broadcast, I'll sack 'em. I'm sick of dead guys. Whenever I turn on baseball, all I hear about is dead guys. If I hear a name, I'm going to ask: 'Is he dead?' And if he is, you're fired." - Fox Sports President David Hill in The Cultural Encyclopedia of Baseball (Jonathan Fraser Light, 2005)

Major League Baseball Players Who Were Born in 1905



The day after a rookie player makes his Major League debut, we create his online baseball card. Their year of birth automatically updates this research. If you are interested in finding rookie debuts by year, visit our Baseball Famous Firsts section (Examples: 2018 A.L. Rookies & 2018 N.L. Rookies ).

The follow Baseball Almanac research enables you to find Major League Baseball players who were born (and died) on any specific date of the year!

If you'd like this research in reverse , Major League Baseball Players by Year of Death , we have that available online as well.
