    I was just looking at the USA Team for the WBC and noticing the places of birth for each player.

    It’s funny, in my mind, Jeter is a Kalamazoo guy and A-Rod is a Miami dude. But, technically, I believe that Derek and Alex are the first full-time SS/3B combo for the Yankees where both players were born in the Tri-State Area.

    There must have been some good water in the system back in the mid-70’s.

      What about Rizzuto and Billy Johnson (born in Montclair) in 1947?
