Trivia: Which Division I baseball program had the most players in the Major Leagues in 2010?

Miami? LSU? USC? Texas? Florida State? WRONG!!

The Division I program that had the most Major Leaguers appear in the 2010 season was ... Long Beach State with 16 players. Shocker, right?! In recent years, the Giants have drafted a number of former Dirtbags too ... the most notable one to actually play in San Francisco was John Bowker. Others in the farm system have included Todd Jennings (C) and Brian Anderson (RHP).
