In looking at the active rosters and disabled lists of the 30 Major League teams on April 10, there are 303 who played Division I baseball. That represents nearly 40% of the 750 major leaguers.


There are 131 Division I schools which have at least one alum in the major leagues. LSU leads the way with eight big-leaguers, followed by Florida State, Nevada, Oklahoma and Stanford with seven. There are six major leaguers from Arizona State (including Dustin Pedroia, pictured above), Long Beach State, Rice, UCLA and USC.


Toronto leads the major league teams with 17 Division I players on its active roster and DL. Tampa Bay and Arizona both have 16, while Minnesota, Oakland and San Francisco each have 14. The Angels have the lowest number with four, followed by the Royals, Braves and Yankees with five.
