Georgetown University Baseball Players Who Made it to the Major Leagues

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

"He (Charlie Gehringer) made things so easy that he wasn't appreciated. (Joe) DiMaggio was like that for a while. He was so damn graceful that it took him quite a while to be appreciated. The difficult plays, I mean, he made them look easy." - Clyde Sukeforth in a Mike Shatzkin Interview (September 19, 1993)

Georgetown University M.L.B. Player Alumni



The Georgetown University baseball program started in 1866 and Tom McCreery was their first player to make it to the Major League level. Names that appear on the chart above in bold print are in the Georgetown University Hall of Fame.

The Georgetown University Hoyas were once nicknamed something else and one has to wonder exactly what is a "Hoya" anyway:

What is a Hoya?

Many years ago, when all Georgetown students were required to study Greek and Latin, the University's teams were nicknamed "The Stonewalls." It is suggested that a student, using Greek and Latin terms, started the cheer "Hoya Saxa!", which translates into "What Rocks!" The name proved popular and the term "Hoyas" was eventually adopted for all Georgetown teams.

Did you know that there are thirty-five former Georgetown University players who made it to the show? Please send updates to Baseball Almanac .
