University of Texas at Austin Baseball Players Who Made it to the Major Leagues

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

"I am intense, no question about it. Every time I toe the rubber, it's no different for me than it was in the World Series. That might be somebody's only chance to see me pitch. They might have driven four hours to get there. I'm going to be out there if I can help it." - Roger Clemens in Sport Magazine(May 2000)

Dunn redshirted his freshman season, was asked to move to the tight end position his second year, but decided against it and left Texas to concentrate on baseball.
