Midwest League 1972


Player Roster

Players who played for teams in the Midwest League in 1972. 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.

353 different players are listed on this page (42 of whom played in the majors), as are 47 non-playing personel; some are listed more than once.


  • Team Roster Limit: 19 players (25 for the first 30 days) (National Association Rule).
  • Experience Rules: Minimum of 6 limited service players, maximum of 2 veterans.
  • Salary Limit: No salary 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.
