There are 30 Major League Baseball teams. Each has 25 players, so there are 750 players in the Major Leagues. From September 1 through the end of the regular season (usually t…he first Sunday in October) teams can expand their roster to 40 players, so during that period there can be 1,200 Major League Baseball players. Teams also have 10 players on their A, AA and AAA minor league affiliates
During the regular season each of the 30 teams has 25 players. So the answer is 750.
I know of one John Olerude - Actually, Olerud (no 'e') had a rehab stint in his last year or two. While I know there are more than this, the ones I know are: Bob F…eller , Al Kaline, Dave Winfield, and Bob Horner
According to the Baseball Almanac, in 2006 there were 978 US born players in MLB. That same year there were 399, close to 30% foreign born players. Dominican Republic ha…d the most players, followed by Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, Cuba and Japan.
Answer There are 25 players on each team's active roster. There are 30 teams in MLB. Therefore, there are 750 players on MLB rosters.
750 Through August 31 of every year, there are 750 Major League baseball players: 25 players on each of the 30 Major League teams. Beginning September 1 teams are… allowed to expand their active rosters up to 40.
Some, but probably not all, are (today being July 2, 2009): 1) Jamie Moyer - played for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1991 and plays for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2009. 2)… Ken Griffey Jr. - played for the Seattle Mariners in 1991 and plays for the Mariners in 2009. 3) John Smoltz - played for the Atlanta Braves in 1991 and plays for the Boston Red Sox in 2009. 4) Jim Thome - played for the Cleveland Indians in 1991 and plays for the Chicago White Sox in 2009. 5) Omar Vizquel - played for the Seattle Mariners in 1991 and plays for the Texas Rangers in 2009. 6) Randy Johnson - played for the Seattle Mariners in 1991 and plays for the San Francisco Giants in 2009. 7) Tom Gordon - played for the Kansas City Royals in 1991 and plays for the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2009. 8) Ivan Rodriguez - played for the Texas Rangers in 1991 and plays for the Houston Astros in 2009. 9) Gary Sheffield - played for the Milwaukee Brewers in 1991 and plays for the New York Mets in 2009. 10) Dave Weathers - played in 1991 for the Toronto Blue Jays and plays for the Cincinnati Reds in 2009.

None have died on the field, but in 1920 Indians shortstop Ray Chapman was hit in the head by a pitch (they didn't wear helmets back then) and died the next day.
Many Major League Baseball players played football in high school. Most notably, last year's AL MVP, Joe Mauer, was the nation's number one high school recruit as a quarterbac…k. He signed with the Florida State Seminoles, but obviously chose baseball instead.
To many to count
there's no minimum, in fact most minor league players retire before even reaching the majors.
Amost all of them
Before I answer the question, I need to clarify something here. There are several rosters for each Major League team. You have the Forty-man roster, which is a roster of all …protected players, and the 25-man roster, or the active roster. Players on the 7- or-15-day disabled list are on the 40-man roster. Players on the 60-day disabled list are not on the 40-man roster. The active roster is a roster of players eligible to play on any given day and is limited to 25 men from Opening Day to August 31. So, from Opening Day through August 31, the maximum number of players that can appear in a game is 25. As a practical matter, it is very rare that all 25 men on an active roster would appear in a game. The next day's starting pitcher would almost never appear in a game. Often-times, since many teams carry only 2 catchers, it would be semi-rare for the backup catcher to appear in case of injury to the starting catcher, but it happens rather frequently. So, while 25 *could* appear - for each team for a total of 50 - , it is unlikely that more than 23 *would* appear. An exception to this rule might be a suspended game (tied late in the game or that a visiting team had just taken the lead and the home team did not have a chance to catch up and that could not continue for curfew reasons, lighting malfunctions, legal reasons or weather-related reasons) where one or both teams made a roster move between dates, the additional players *might* be eligible to play when the suspended game is resumed. It happened between the Braves and the Mets in 1978(?). So, under a suspended game, more than 25 men might be eligible to appear in a game. This is governed by Rule 4.12. On September 1, a team can call up the remainder of its 40-man roster. So, after September 1 through the end of the season, the maximum that could participate in a game is 40 for each team for a total of 80 between the two teams.
