Hall of Famers by Position

There are four categories in which a baseball legend can become an immortal by election to the National Baseball Hall of Fame: Player, Manager, Umpire or Executive.

More than 18,900 players have stepped onto a major league diamond in the nearly 150-year history of professional baseball. Only 220 have been elected to the Hall of Fame - a rate of about one percent of all major leaguers. Combined with the 29 Negro League players elected by committees and special elections, the total number of ballplayers in the Plaque Gallery is 249.

Joining that elite group of players are 68 managers, umpires and executives who left a profound impact in the dugout, around the field and in the front office. Altogether, these men and women make up Club 317 - the most exclusive fraternity in baseball.

Below are lists of the Hall of Famers sorted by the positions in which they left their most indelible mark on the game.
