There have been 193 players that have played in MLB that were born in Cincinnati. The currently active guys are:

Andrew Brackman
Josh Harrison
Jensen Lewis
James Russell
Joe Smith
Eric Surkamp
Kevin Youkilis

A few of past players that are from Cincinnati that caught my eye are:
Barry Larkin
Don Zimmer
Pete Rose
Ron Oester
Shannon Stewart

And I went to the same school as Jayhawk Owens. A catcher for the Rockies a few years back.
Mark Teixeira
Gavin Floyd

To list a few current guys
Some bigger cities have better odds. as with my area population is around 20,000. but tra thomas was in the nfl a few years back.
Brian Wilson... And That's it.
in the small city I live in now, the most notable are Jesse Barfield & Jeff Reed. They were born & raised & played h.s. ball here.
