The Ballplayers
A Baseball Player Encyclopedia (Peak to Petty)

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 read where Roger Clemens said it was a goal of his. To me, that's like planning for the ninth inning when you're in the first. I don't know many players who have set out to make the Hall of Fame, and I've played with both Frank (Robinson) and Brooks Robinson. I remember talking to Brooks about it one time, and it was like it hadn't even occurred to him. If Brooks Robinson didn't have the right to think about it, who did?" - Hall of Fame Pitcher Jim Palmer

P is for Plank,
The arm of the A's;
When he tangled with Matty
Games lasted for days.
