Major League Baseball Players Who Were Born in 1912

While looking up at an Old Timers' Day scoreboard which was listing deceased Yankee greats, Hall of Fame Catcher Yogi Berra once quipped, "Boy, I hope I never see my name up there." The research below allows you to "check the scoreboard" in a year by year format. Simply select a year and up comes a list of every Major League player who was born during any given year.

"If anybody talks about a dead guy during a broadcast, I'll sack 'em. I'm sick of dead guys. Whenever I turn on baseball, all I hear about is dead guys. If I hear a name, I'm going to ask: 'Is he dead?' And if he is, you're fired." - Fox Sports President David Hill in The Cultural Encyclopedia of Baseball (Jonathan Fraser Light, 2005)

The day after a rookie player makes his Major League debut, we create his online baseball card. Their year of birth automatically updates this research. If you are interested in finding rookie debuts by year, visit our Baseball Famous Firsts section (Examples: 2018 A.L. Rookies & 2018 N.L. Rookies ).

If you'd like this research in reverse , Major League Baseball Players by Year of Death , we have that available online as well.
