The Guilford College baseball program started in 1889 and Bill Lindsay was their first player to make it to the Major League level. On September 3, 1934, former All-American (1931) football star Bob Garbark broke into the major leagues, but is not included on the chart above as he did not play baseball for the Quakers.
On August 8, 1921, Luke Stuart became the first Quaker to hit a major league home run when he connected off Walter Johnson in the top of the ninth inning, with one runner on base and scored via an inside the park (Griffith Stadium) home run.
Did you know that there are ten former Guilford players who made it to the show? Send corrections or updates to Baseball Almanac.
