They Played the Game
A Fun and Fact-Filled Directory of Baseball Players
from the Game's Beginnings to the Present Day
Welcome to They Played the Game, a tribute to those who played major league baseball -- the famous and the obscure, the good and the not-so-good.

A Player Profile provides a more comprehensive look at a particular player, with year-by-year statistics. They Played the Game is a companion site of That's Baseball ( For more information on That's Baseball, see below.
