The SEC rules Major League Baseball.
That’s according to numbers released on Tuesday night by the SEC Network on Twitter that show the SEC has more MLB players than any other conference.

There are 68 SEC players on MLB rosters for opening day, leading the second-place Pac-12 (43 players), the ACC (41) and Big 12 (30).
That’s a pretty big margin over the others.
Some of the headliners for the SEC in MLB are Josh Donaldson of the Toronto Blue Jays (Auburn), Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals (Missouri), Michael Wacha of the St. Louis Cardinals (Texas A&M), along with Sonny Gray of the Oakland A’s and David Price of the Boston Red Sox (both Vanderbilt).
There were 62 SEC players on opening day MLB rosters in 2016.
