The University of Florida baseball program started in 1912 and Lance Richbourg was their first player to make it to the Major League level. Names that appear on the chart above in bold print are in the University of Florida Hall of Fame.
The Florida Gators play baseball at McKethan Stadium at Perry Field (ranked seventh best college baseball field in the United States by Baseball America) which seats 5,000 fans at capacity, including 2,500 grandstand seats (almost 1,000 with chairbacks) and 2,500 bleacher seats extending down the outfield lines in left-field.
Did you know that there are fifty-six former Florida players who made it to the show? Send updates to Baseball Almanac.
