Major League Baseball Players Born in Virginia



Did you know that Jose Canseco was the first foreign-born ( Cuba ) player to reach the four-hundred home runs plateau? Did you know that Sammy Sosa was the first foreign-born ( Dominican Republic ) player to reach the five-hundred home runs plateau?

Baseball Almanac is aware that researching baseball players by their place of birth is common data found easily on the Internet today. We, as you are well aware, enjoy taking that extra step here and have taken that common data and added this amazing chart which will enable you to see a historical breakdown of players from any given year in history by their place of birth:

If you would like to see a comprehensive list broken down by country of the first player born in a country or territory other than the United States of America, we have one in our Famous First section called Foreign Born Baseball Players .
