Baseball in Vincennes


Player Roster

Players who played for teams in Vincennes, Indiana, during its tenure as a Mississippi-Ohio Valley League city (the MOV is a Midwest League predecessor). This list includes all players and coaching staff members I can identify, and selected front office staff. There are almost certainly players missing from this list, as the available sources are known to be incomplete.

Players who played in Vincennes for more than one season are listed for each season. Since this list includes the 1952 team which moved to Canton in mid-season, it's possible that some of these guys never played for Vincennes.

58 different players are listed on this page (1 of whom played in the majors), as are 11 non-playing personnel; some are listed more than once.


My intention is to include everyone who wore an Vincennes uniform on an MOV 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.
