Santa Clara University Baseball Players Who Made it to the Major Leagues

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive chart of every Santa Clara University alumni who played baseball at Santa Clara University AND made it to the Major League level.

"Well, I'm sitting with her (his wife of six months) about an hour into the flight when Bob Gibson and Bill White came over. I said, 'Bob, Bill, this is my wife Ginger.' They said in unison, 'Nellie, that's not the wife you introduced us to in Chicago.' Ginger fumed and would not look at me. I said, 'Guys, she doesn't understand. Tell her you're kidding.' They didn't. This seven hour flight in silence was interminable. Moments before landing, they told her it was a joke to show a rookie the ropes. Ginger still didn't warm up to me for two weeks." - Nelson Briles in Baseball Digest (October 1995)
