Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive chart of every University of Georgia alumni who played baseball at the University of Georgia AND made it to the Major League level.
"Selected as an All-Star four times, and a one-time winner of the American League Most Valuable Player over an 11-year career with the New York Yankees, Spud Chandler was frequently overshadowed by such legendary teammates as Joe DiMaggio, Bill Dickey and Lou Gehrig, but he was beloved by Georgians who remembered his years playing both baseball and football at the University of Georgia (1929-1932)." - Our Georgia History
