The Indiana State University baseball program started in 1896, and Jeff James 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 Indiana State University Hall of Fame.

On September 6, 1963 , former pitcher Tommy John made his Major League debut and this is of note as he attended Indiana State, but did not play baseball for the Sycamores as he was already a big league hurler.

Did you know that there are twenty-three former Indiana State University baseball players who made it to the major leagues? Send updates to Baseball Almanac .
