Midwest League 1963


Player Roster

Players who played for teams in the Midwest League in 1963. This list includes all players I can identify, coaching staff members, umpires, and selected front office staff. There are likely to be people missing from this list, as the available sources are known to be unreliable.

357 different players are listed on this page (41 of whom played in the majors), as are 42 non-playing personel; some are listed more than once.


  • Team Roster Limit: 19 players (25 for first and last 30 days of season) (National Association Rule).
  • Experience Rules: Minimum of 4 rookies (National Association Rule).
  • Salary Limit: $5,225 per month (team); $275 per month minimum per player; manager excluded from this calculation (National Association Rule).
  • League Statistician: Howe News Bureau.

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.
