Major League Baseball Players Who Were Born in 1931

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.

Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"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)
