Welcome to the Club, Josh Newman

Depending on whose count you use, Josh Newman has just become the 47th or 56th Buckeye to play in the major leagues. The 47 figure from the SABR Collegiate Committee and as seen on Baseball-Reference, includes only players who are confirmed to have played for OSU. I was provided some additional names by an anonymous message board poster, which I have included on my website, but these have not been vetted, and probably never will be able to. Unless you can get a full list of all students registered at the school, some old-timers will inevitably come down to "We can't confirm that he went to OSU, but we can't say definitively that he didn't either." Anyway, congratulations to Josh.
