  • The listing of players below can be described only as a feeble attempt at birthplace accuracy. Though mlb players birthplace may be more accurate than others, all birth places on the site are questionable and should not be assumed accurate.
  • It can, however be assumed with a very good level of certainty that the player did pass through the town or city under which he is listed by either attending high school in the city or residing in the city at the time the field was captured by TBC.
