Wichita State University Baseball Players Who Made it to the Major Leagues

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive chart of every Wichita State University alumni who played baseball at Wichita State University AND made it to the Major League level.

"I'm definitely honored. It doesn't feel like it's been five years since I retired. It feels like only a couple of years. But to see your name on the (Hall of Fame) ballot with Eck (Dennis Eckersley), Mollie (Paul Molitor) and (Ryne) Sandberg, that definitely feels good." - Joe Carter in Carter on HOF ballot for first time (MLB.com 12/25/2003)

Wichita State University M.L.B. Player Alumni



The Wichita State University baseball program started in 1899, Claude Hendrix was the first former Shocker to make it to the Major League level. Names that appear on the chart above in bold print are in the Wichita State University Hall of Fame.
Did you know that there were thirty-nine former Wichita State University ballplayers (not counting the three students who went to Wichita, but did not play baseball there: Daryl Spencer , Fritz Brickell , Larry Foss ) who made it to the majors? Send updates to Baseball Almanac .
The Wichita State Shockers stopped playing baseball from 1924 through 1947, and once more between 1971 through 1977.
