List of famous American baseball players with their biographies that include trivia, interesting facts, timeline and life history.

Ask anyone what is America's favorite pastime and the answer will be baseball. And why not? After all who does not love to engage in a game of baseball while munching on peanuts and crackers? That is right! Baseball and America are inseparable. In fact, it has been the country's most preferred sport for a long time and for more reasons than one. The game of baseball is steeped in century's worth of tradition and history. And unlike many other sports, it is a lot more intricate too. With the balls and strikes, four bases, nine long innings, and a really complicated scoring system, the game might knock one off. But just a run down the fundamentals and its easy to get into the game. America has produced a wad of heavy hitters and extremely powerful pitchers in history. Thanks to their extraordinary RBIs, match-winning strikeouts, and king-sized personalities, these baseball players have gone ahead to become legends in their own rights. Read all about their lives, feats, timeline, trivia, and facts in the biographies below.
