Mustangs in the SHOW

IMG_7510

Jim Dunn made his Major League Baseball debut with the Pittsburgh Pirates on August 26, 1952, and since then, over 200 former Mustangs players have followed Dunn's path to the big leagues. While the majority of players made it to the Major Leagues with the National League Cincinnati Reds, the MLB affiliate and partner of the Mustangs since 1974, a total of 29 different MLB organizations are represented on the list. All players listed dressed in uniform for at least one game with the Mustangs, though the player may not have officially appeared in a game. Charlie Root (1948), Frank Jelincich (1948), Cliff Dapper (1952) and Andrew McKirahan (2017) played Major League Baseball prior to wearing a Mustangs uniform.
