This is the beginning of a series I have been toying with for years now. I guess it was inspired by Sue Grafton's mystery alphabet series.
Some things you should know at the outset. First, every player had to have been on at least one All-Star team. Therefore players who had great careers or years prior to 1933 are excluded from this list. So you will not find any of my infamous "Mayflower" boys on here.
When there was more than one player at a particular position, I tried to determine his career value as opposed to the particular AS seasons they had.
If available I will select a starting pitcher and reliever. In the absence of one or the other I will only define the position as "pitcher".
Some positions will be severely watered down and some letters will have to be omitted, probably the letter "Q" for example. I won't know until I begin the research on each individual letter.
As long as I can "field" a team by letter, I will do it regardless of the apparent quality of the players involved.
This first team in the series includes four members of the Hall of Fame. Let me reveal to you, the MLB All-Stars by the Letter "A".
