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 23,000 players have stepped onto a major league diamond in the 150-year history of professional baseball. Only 270 have been elected to the Hall of Fame - a rate of about one percent of all major leaguers. Joining that elite group of players are 72 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 342 - 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.
