    Who reviewed the data that this elite list of HBCU baseball players was selected from to reach these conclusions. For instance, how in the name of all that is competitive about college baseball, that Elvin McElveen, at Clafin did not make either the first or second team at First Base? Asking for a baseball nerd.
