These Colleges Produced The Most 2021 MLB Postseason Players
Playoff baseball is well underway, and college teams are keeping a close watch on the action and their former players now playing on baseball’s biggest stage.
Vanderbilt this year has the most alumni on playoff rosters with five, the second straight year it has had the most alumni on playoff rosters. The Commodores also had the most alumni on Opening Day rosters with 11.
Louisville and Mississippi State closely follow Vanderbilt with four alumni each on postseason rosters. Gulf Coast State (Fla.) JC leads all junior colleges with two alumni (who were drafted and signed out of junior college) in the playoffs.
Of the more than 260 players on playoff rosters this season, 128 went to a two- or four-year college. They represent 80 different schools, from Alabama (David Robertson, Rays) to Wisconsin-Stevens Point (J.P. Feyereisen, Rays).
This count credits players for their final college season before they went to pro ball. Players who went to a four-year school after junior college are counted only for their four-year school. Only players on a team’s 26-man active roster were counted.
