Virginia Commonwealth University M.L.B. Player Alumni



The Virginia Commonwealth University baseball program started in 1950 and Jim Austin 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 Virginia Commonwealth University Hall of Fame.

Did you know that there are ten former Virginia Commonwealth players who made it to the show? Send corrections or updates to Baseball Almanac .

Former hurler Mike Wallace , who made his debut on June 27, 1973 , would have been the first former Ram to make it to the Major League level, but he did not play baseball for the team.
