The Top 100 Position Players in MLB History

Franchise Roll Call 

So which teams have the most pitchers in my top 300?   Take a look!

To be eligible, a player must have been active on the franchise for a minimum of 4 seasons.  Why 4?  Seems like a fair number of season to say a player was a big "part" of the franchise.  In the rare occasion that a player did not play 4 seasons on any one team, he will be considered a member of the franchise in which he played the most.

The franchises listed below include their entire franchise history.  Example: the Baltimore total includes St. Louis Browns' players, etc.  Here is a list of all MLB franchises and their "variations."
