    The only one I know off hand, other than all the pitchers, is Jackie Robinson.

      Ralph Kiner
      Mike "King" Kelly (probably shouldn't be listed because he's a 19th century player)

        Yes. Can you?

          Forgetting the career Negro Leaguers, the pitchers, and the executives and/or managers who played some, the list is still more extensive than I would have guessed. In addition to the above, we have the vast majority of the catchers in the Hall, some 19th century guys, some guys who split their careers between the majors and the Negro Leagues, and some others. The rest of the list I compiled from baseball-reference.com:

          Buck Ewing
          Roger Bresnahan
          Mickey Cochrane
          Roy Campanella
          Rick Ferrell
          Ernie Lombardi
          Hughie Jennings
          Hank Greenberg
          George Kelly
          Jackie Robinson
          Jimmy Collins
          Freddie Lindstrom
          Travis Jackson
          Lou Boudreau
          Tommy McCarthy
          Elmer Flick
          Earle Combs
          Chick Hafey
          Ross Youngs
          Monte Irvin
          Hack Wilson

          I wouldn't have guessed there were 31, much less been able to name them all. OTOH, I understand some frustration with the originator of the thread, whose posts remind me of someone with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).
