Major League Baseball has never had a player whose last name starts with X. Joe Xavier, who made it to AAA in 1989-90, is as close as any X player has gotten.

Until now.

Major League Baseball’s decision to reclassify some of the Negro Leagues  as “major league” changes that.  The Negro American League – once of the reclassified leagues – had a man by the name of Leovigildo Xiques, who played for the (Cincinnati and) Indianapolis Clowns.
