Which State Has the Most Baseball Hall of Famers?

I am a former sports editor and currently serve as a historian with the Society of American Baseball Research and manage a valet operation.

Only 80% of states are represented by inductees in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

What States Have Produced the Most Baseball Hall of Famers?

With a history spanning more than 150 years, it's no surprise that baseball Hall of Famers have been born all throughout the United States of America. There have been 333 individuals inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, but not all 50 states have been represented by those inductees. Hall of Famers have been born in 40 of the 50 states, as well as Puerto Rico and eight foreign countries. In this article, I will highlight the 10 states with the most Hall of Famers. You'll also find information about the states that don't have a Hall of Famer and a complete list of all Hall of Famers sorted by birthplace.

I relied upon data from Baseball-Reference in compiling this database, which includes all Hall of Famers (players, managers, executives, pioneers and umpires). Information was compiled manually, so if you spot an error, please reach out to me.

Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown had five straight seasons with at least 20 wins and an ERA under 2.00 for the Chicago Cubs. He was born in Terra Haute, Indiana.

T-10. Indiana

  • Hall of Famers: 10
  • Earliest Inductee: Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown (1949)
  • Most Recent Inductee: Chuck Klein (1980)

The Hoosier State briefly fielded a handful of professional teams in the earliest days of Major League Baseball, but despite the lack of a Major League team, the state has been a hotbed of baseball talent. Indiana is unique in that it's the only state in the top 10 that never had a player voted into the Hall of Fame by the Baseball Writers Association of America. Rather, Indiana watched its 10 inductees enter the Hall of Fame through various committees.

Notable non-Hall of Famers from Indiana include: Scott Rolen, Kenny Lofton, Tommy John, Babe Adams, Gil Hodges and Don Mattingly.

New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra, who was a member of 10 World Series championship teams, was born in St. Louis, Missouri.

T-10. Missouri

  • Hall of Famers: 10
  • Earliest Inductee: Clark Griffith (1946)
  • Most Recent Inductee: Dick Williams (2008)

The St. Louis Cardinals have been in business since 1882 but none of Missouri's 10 Hall of Famers are among the team's legends, nor or any of the state's inductees from the Kansas City Royals (who debuted as a franchise in 1969). Among teams in this top 10, Missouri has the smallest percentage of Hall of Fame players (50% of Missouri's Hall of Famers are known for their playing days). Others inducted include three umpires, one manager and one executive.

Notable non-Hall of Famers from Missouri include: David Cone, Max Scherzer, Ken Boyer and Mark Buehrle.

9. Maryland

  • Hall of Famers: 11
  • Earliest Inductee: Babe Ruth (1936)
  • Most Recent Inductee: Harold Baines (2019)

Maryland stakes claim as the home of the greatest player in baseball history, one of the best to play for the Baltimore Orioles and one who is considered among the worst players ever enshrined in Cooperstown. Hall of Famer Babe Ruth was born in Baltimore but starred for the New York Yankees, while Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr. was born to the north in Havre de Grace but played his entire 21-year career in Baltimore. In 2019, Maryland added an 11th Hall of Famer in Harold Baines, who was inducted by the Veterans' Committee, despite substandard statistics.

Notable non-Hall of Famers from Maryland include: Bobby Mathews, Mark Teixeria and Charlie Keller.

8. Alabama

  • Hall of Famers: 12
  • Earliest Inductee: Heinie Manush (1964)
  • Most Recent Inductee: Mules Suttles (2006)

Alabama has a penchant for producing power hitters. Three members of the 500 Home Run Club—including Hank Aaron (755), Willie Mays (660) and Willie McCovey (521)—hail from the Cotton State. The most notable professional team from Alabama was the Negro League's Birmingham Black Barons, who featured native sons in Hall of Famers Satchel Paige and Mules Suttles, along with a young Mays. Of Alabama's 12 Hall of Famers, all are players—the only state on this list to do so.

Notable non-Hall of Famers from Alabama include: George Foster, Corey Kluber, Jimmy Key, Willie Wilson and Virgil Trucks.

Connie Mack is one of the greatest managers in baseball history. He hailed from East Brookfield, Massachusetts, and spent 53 seasons in the dugout.

7. Massachusetts

  • Hall of Famers: 15
  • Earliest Inductee: Connie Mack (1937)
  • Most Recent Inductee: Jeff Bagwell (2017)

Another long-time franchise that doesn't count any native players among its Hall of Famers is the Boston Red Sox, who were founded in 1901. Yet, none of the 15 inductees born in Massachusetts are found in Red Sox lore. Jeff Bagwell could have been—he was drafted by Boston but was traded to the Houston Astros, where he blossomed into one of baseball's top power threats of the 1990s. The majority of Hall of Famers from Massachusetts are figures from early in baseball history, not surprising given baseball's roots in the New England area.

Notable non-Hall of Famers from Massachusetts include: Charlie Buffinton, Wilbur Wood and Bill Donovan.

6. Texas

  • Hall of Famers: 16
  • Earliest Inductee: Tris Speaker (1937)
  • Most Recent Inductee: Greg Maddux (2014)

As one of the most-populous states in the country for decades, it's no surprise Texas has developed a significant amount of baseball Hall of Famers. The Lone Star State has done a little bit of everything—bringing some baseball's best pitchers, power hitters and contact hitters of all-time. Natives include ace pitchers Nolan Ryan and Greg Maddux, sluggers Frank Robinson, Ernie Banks and Eddie Mathews, and high-average hitters Rogers Hornsby and Tris Speaker. Only one non-player from Texas is inducted—Negro Leagues manager Rube Foster.

Notable non-Hall of Famers from Texas include: Clayton Kershaw, Norm Cash, Schoolboy Rowe, Curt Flood and Hippo Vaughn.

5. Ohio

  • Hall of Famers: 19
  • Earliest Inductee: Ban Johnson and Cy Young (1937)
  • Most Recent Inductee: Barry Larkin (2012)

Cleveland and Cincinnati have both held Major League franchises for more than a century, and with that has come a bevy of Hall of Famers from the talent-rich state. From the winningest pitcher in baseball history (Cy Young) to perhaps the most important executive in history (Branch Rickey) to arguably the greatest third baseman to play game (Mike Schmidt), Ohio natives have a vital place in baseball's history. That said, very few of the 19 inductees spent significant time with Cleveland or Cincinnati.

Notable non-Hall of Famers from Ohio include: all-time hits king Pete Rose (banned from baseball in 1989), Roger Clemens (suspected of steroid use), Urban Shocker, George Uhle, Thurman Munson, Al Oliver and Sad Sam Jones.

4. Illinois

  • Hall of Famers: 23
  • Earliest Inductee: Charles Comiskey and Al Spalding (1939)
  • Most Recent Inductee: Jim Thome (2018)

Illinois has the best mixture of figures in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Of the 23 inductees from the Land of Lincoln, there are 12 players, six executives, four umpires and a manager. Three of the players were born in the same region, leading to the creation of the B-R-S Museum in Nokomis, which honors Jim Bottomley, Red Ruffing and Ray Schalk. They join some of the greatest executives in Illinois history, notably Charles Comiskey and Bill Veeck, who both owned the White Sox.

Notable non-Hall of Famers from Illinois include: Fred Lynn, Bret Saberhagen, Rick Reuschel and Dutch Leonard.

3. Pennsylvania

  • Hall of Famers: 25
  • Earliest Inductee: Christy Mathewson and Honus Wagner (1936)
  • Most Recent Inductee: Mike Mussina (2019)

In regards to the Baseball Hall of Fame, Pennsylvania is perhaps most known for having two inductees who share the same small hometown. Donora was the birthplace of both Stan Musial and Ken Griffey Jr., and currently has a population of less than 5,000 people. But the Keystone State has produced a lot more talent than that, including two members of the first ever Hall of Fame class (Christy Mathewson and Honus Wagner) as well as a "family" connection (Mike Piazza, whose Godfather was Tommy Lasorda). Pennsylvania also has a distinction of being the home state of the only female in the Hall of Fame. That's Effa Manley, who was a co-owner of the Newark Eagles of the Negro Leagues.

Notable non-Hall of Famers from Pennsylvania include: Dick Allen, Jack Clark, Sherry Magee, Sam McDowell, Joe Maddon and Buddy Bell.

2. California

  • Hall of Famers: 26
  • Earliest Inductee: Frank Chance (1946)
  • Most Recent Inductee: Trevor Hoffman and Alan Trammell (2018)

Several of the greatest pure hitters in the history of baseball were born in California. Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio and Tony Gwynn each hailed from the Golden State. Williams is the last player to ever hit .400 in a season, while DiMaggio holds the Major League record with a 56-game hitting streak, and Gwynn won a National League record-tying eight batting titles and held a .338 career average. Another product of California is Eddie Murray, who is one of six players ever to record 3,000 hits and 500 home runs. Add in front-line starters like Tom Seaver and Randy Johnson, and the all-time California team would likely compete for a championship.

Notable non-Hall of Famers from California include: Barry Bonds (suspected steroid use), C.C. Sabathia, Mark McGwire (suspected steroid use), Graig Nettles, Dwight Evans, Bobby Bonds, Jeff Kent, Billy Martin and Dusty Baker.

Lou Gehrig is one of several New York natives to thrive with the Yankees. Gehrig was born in New York City.

Lou Gehrig is one of several New York natives to thrive with the Yankees. Gehrig was born in New York City.

1. New York

  • Hall of Famers: 33
  • Earliest Inductee: John McGraw and George Wright (1937)
  • Most Recent Inductee: Marvin Miller (2020)

The state that has produced the most baseball Hall of Famers is New York. And since baseball in New York is all about the Yankees, it's no surprise that several of the best players in franchise history were bred in the city's backyard. The most notable New York native is Lou Gehrig, and he is joined by Whitey Ford, Phil Rizzuto and long-time manager Joe Torre. But since the Empire State has produced more Hall of Famers than any other state, a handful of the Yankees' rivals were also born there. Boston slugger Carl Yastrzemski, and 1963 World Series rival Sandy Koufax (the ace of the Dodgers) are both New York natives.

Notable non-Hall of Famers from New York include: Alex Rodriguez (future eligible but suspected of steroid use), Lou Whitaker, Bill Dahlen, Orel Hershiser and Rocky Colavito.

What Baseball Hall of Famers Weren't Born in the United States?

Eight countries have natives inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, accounting for 17 members of the Hall of Fame. That number is expected to rise in coming years, as upcoming first-time eligible players who are very likely to garner induction in their first try include: David Ortiz (Dominican Republic, 2022), Adrian Beltre (Dominican Republic, 2024) and Ichiro Suzuki (Japan, 2025).
