The Ballplayers
A Baseball Player Encyclopedia (Ka'aihue to Kent)

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.

"My dad was a big Philadelphia Athletics fan, so I grew up idolizing Connie Mack and Lefty Grove, who was my first hero; and Bobby Shantz, who was my pitching model." - Jim Kaat
