The Ballplayers
A Baseball Player Encyclopedia (Yabu to Yvars)

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 think about baseball when I wake up in the morning. I think about it all day and I dream about it at night. The only time I don't think about it is when I'm playing it." - Carl Yastrzemski

Y is for Young
The magnificent Cy;
People battled against him,
But I never knew why.
