Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive chart of every University of Oregon alumni who played baseball at the University of Oregon AND made it to the Major League level.
"The Yankees traded away first baseman Babe Dahlgren and experimented with second baseman Joe Gordon at first. Another rookie, slick-fielding Gerry Priddy, supplanted Gordon at second." - Dick Johnson & Glenn Stout in DiMaggio : An Illustrated Life (1995)
Major League Baseball Player Alumni
The University of Oregon baseball program started in 1876, Curt Coleman was the first former Duck to make it to the Major League level. Names that appear in bold print are in the University of Oregon Hall of Fame.
The University of Oregon's athletic teams are known as the Ducks and their fight song — Mighty Oregon — is posted below:
Oregon, our Alma Mater
We will guard thee on and on
Let us gather 'round and cheer her
Chant her glory Oregon
Roar the praises of her warriors
Sing the story Oregon
On to victory urge the heroes
Of our mighty Oregon
Go, Ducks, Go!
Fight, Ducks, Fight!
Win, Ducks, Win!
