Midwest League 1970


Player Roster

Players who played for teams in the Midwest League in 1970. 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.

389 different players are listed on this page (48 of whom played in the majors), as are 42 non-playing personel; some are listed more than once.


  • Team Roster Limit: 25 players (only 19 in uniform for any game).
  • Experience Rules: Minimum of 9 rookies, maximum of 2 veterans.
  • Salary Limit: Unable to discover limit.
  • 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.
