According to the guys on XM175 "Baseball This Morning", the total number of players that have played baseball at the major league level is 16,412. For over a hundred years of baseball, you would think that number would be higher. Pretty exclusive club. This number is the big leagues only.

That seems real small. Do they have a requirement on years/months played? Because that list can't honestly account for the cups of coffee guys and September call-ups.
