The Ballplayers
A Baseball Player Encyclopedia (Gabbard to Genovese)

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive list of EVERY Major League player whose last name falls between the names above. Included on the chart are links to the players biography, the years he played, an Auto(graphed) baseball card notation (Y=Yes) and a (HOF) Hall of Fame mark (Y=Yes). Bold entries stand for active players which are defined as those who played in at least one Major League game during the most recently completed season.

"I never heard of (Lou) Gehrig before I came here and I always thought Babe Ruth was a cartoon character. I really did. I mean, I wasn't born until 1961 and I grew up in Indiana." - Don Mattingly

G is for Gehrig,
The Pride of the Stadium;
His record pure gold,
His courage, pure radium.
