The book Deadball Stars of the American League (2006) includes 136 short biographies organized by club. Each subject is assigned to one of the eight A.L. clubs except that two executives and three umpires are assigned to the league (League). Here the subjects are listed by last name. "Role" is principal fielding position for those featured mainly as players; the other roles are executive (Exec), umpire (Ump), manager (Mgr), and coach (Coach).
Each club is also represented by one "All-Era Team" (9 players) and by a series of annual representative lineups. The All-Era Teams were selected by a Deadball Era Committee survey and the team lineups were researched by one author for each season, listed far below.
