Nearly 350 Former Division I
Players in Big Leagues
In looking at the active rosters
and disabled lists of the 30 Major
League teams at the All-Star break, there are 348 who played
Division I baseball. That is an increase of 20 from the
beginning of the season.
Several former college standouts have been called
up recently, including Dustin Ackley (pictured right at North
Carolina) with the Seattle Mariners, Jemile Weeks (Miami, Fla.)
with the Oakland Athletics and Josh Spence (Arizona State) with
the San Diego Padres.
There are 131 Division I schools which have at
least one alum in the major leagues. Arizona State, Long Beach
State and Miami (Fla.) lead the way with 10 each. There are eight major
leaguers from California, Cal State Fullerton and Stanford.
There are seven from Ole Miss and Texas.
The surging Pittsburgh Pirates lead the major league teams with 19
Division I players on their active roster and DL. Toronto has
16, Oakland has 15, and Arizona, Houston and San Diego have 14
each. The Los Angeles Angels have the
lowest number with five.
There are links to lists divided by school and by
