Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive chart of every Utah State University alumni who played baseball at Utah State University AND made it to the Major League level.
"He ( Jerry Nyman ) had earned a chance to pitch in the big leagues, but we couldn't find anybody who'd give him a shot. It brought tears to my eyes. It really did. I felt sorry for the guy. To be honest with you, I didn't know if he'd ever get another chance to do what he had done." - Earl Weaver in The Sporting News (1975)
