New York Yankees Farmhands in the Midwest League


Player Roster

Players who played for the New York Yankees as members of Illinois State League or Midwest League teams (the ISL is an MWL predecessor). This list includes all players and coaching staff members I can identify. There are almost certainly players missing from this list, as the available sources are known to be incomplete.

Players who played for the Yankees in more than one season are listed for each season.

104 different players are listed on this page (12 of whom have played in the majors, though not necessarily for the Yankees), as are 8 non-playing personnel; many are listed more than once.


My intention is to include everyone who represented the Yankees on an ISL or MWL diamond. While the information here is intended to be both complete and accurate, it's likely that there are omissions and the scale of the project guarantees errors; there's a lot of data here, from a variety of sources, all of which was originally in another format.
