Cool. Yea, Yaz and A.J. Are from the next town over but it's like 15 mins away. My dad worked with Yaz's cousins. I know A.J.'s family, and Ross gload went to the same high school and is still friends with one of my co workers.

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.
