An All-Science List of Major Leaguers

This is a plain list of some major leaguers whose first, middle, and/or last names match, or come very close to, those of famous scientists. The scientists had to either be names I already recognized or people with clearly notable contributions to their fields. I’ve tried for matching last names, but if a scientist had an unusual name, I looked for ballplayers whose first or middle names matched. If you’re playing the game, you get one point for recognizing each player, and two points for recognizing the scientific connection that put him on the list.

  1. Well, This will take me about a week’s worth of research to put together. Got a few of them. Should know more, of course.
