are 74 former Division I players among the 200 major leaguers
listed on postseason rosters.
The Boston Red Sox lead the way with 17 former
Division I players among the 25 on their postseason roster,
including for Arizona State standout Dustin Pedroia (pictured).
The Tampa Bay Rays and the Philadelphia Phillies each have 11.
The Los Angeles Angels have the fewest with five.
A year ago, the team with more former Division I
players on its postseason roster won each series, with the Red
Sox defeating the Colorado Rockies in the World Series. If that
holds true again this year, the Red Sox (17) will eliminate the
Angels (5), the Rays (11) will defeat the White Sox (7), the
Phillies (11) will top the Brewers (8), and the Cubs (8) will
get by the Dodgers (7).
There are 56 Division I schools which have at
least one alum in the postseason. There are six schools with
three players: Georgia Tech, LSU, McNeese State, Miami (Fla.),
Notre Dame and Oklahoma. Six more schools have two players:
Arizona State, Cal State Fullerton, Florida State, Long Beach
State, San Diego State and Stanford.
There are links to lists divided by school and by
Major League teams.
