The Ballplayers
A Baseball Player Encyclopedia (Zabala to Zwilling)

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.

"The short-term goal right now would be to take the field without embarrassing ourselves." - Todd Zeile in The Los Angeles Times (Mal Florence, 'Fortunately, They Don't Carry Sticks', 08/31/1993, Source )
