Almost 50 players have played in Major League Baseball, including Jim Thome, Ben Zobrist, Joe Girardi, Bill Tuttle and Zach Monroe. Most league participants, however, have no higher aspirations than enjoying the sport they love.
Meanwhile, the league keeps statistics on each of them, said Tim Cundiff, president of the organization.
“We have a comprehensive database of every player in league history, thousands of names,” Cundiff said. “… We can print or email an official career statistics sheet.”
At this time, this information is not available on the web. Thus, requests can be made through the league’s website: psml.net.
