Added: Eventually this page will be sourced and broken down into sub lists and so on. For now it is just a fun tool for us to start working on 500 players that this encyclopedia had better have for sure.

To add a player click on 'edit' up above and follow the format given. Then, if you know something about that player, click on their name and edit that page to add information. A little piece at a time, and we'll have something amazing in a few months. Disclaimer: After the first 100 (which are based on The Sporting News Top 100 Players of All-Time) they are not in any coherent order. The list was compiled prior to the 2009 baseball season. Players with (**) are Negro League players. The list was primarily compiled (after the first 100 players) by SABR historian Ron Liebman.
