THE MOST EXCLUSIVE TEAM IN HISTORY…
AN ALL-TIME LINE-UP OF LEGENDS…

100 Years in the making the Major League Baseball All-Century Team was an all-time roster chosen from the more than 15,000 men who played Major League Baseball in the 20th Century. A blue ribbon panel of experts narrowed the candidates to 100 stellar players. This list was then presented for the final voting and determination of the 30 greatest players: the Major League Baseball All-Century Team.
Created by Major League Baseball Productions, this spectacular program narrated by Bob Costas — and now being offered to fans as a specially-priced release — presents these 30 legendary players who set the standard for baseball brilliance across every era of modern baseball.
