The Ballplayers
A Baseball Player Encyclopedia (Saarloos to Schenz)

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 don't think I ever got over that. That's what you play for. These last two days (Hall of Fame ceremonies) have taken some of the sting away. But every year, I still imagine what it must feel like. To reach a World Series ... that would have been the pinnacle." - Ryne Sandberg on MLB.com (Tom Singer, 01/05/2005)

S is for Speaker,
Swift center-field tender,
When the ball saw him coming,
It yelled, "I surrender."
