Likely Opening Day Roster:

C: Kendall
1B: Hatteberg
2B: Ginter
3B: Chavez
SS: Crosby
OF: Byrnes
OF: Kotsay
OF: Thomas

They're all born in California (except Hatte, who was born in Oregon... close enough)

Beane is a California native. Is this part of his new strategy?

Don't know whether this is worth mentioning or not, but Kielty is also a native. The only pitcher who is a native, is Danny Haren.

Yeh, but he was born in Vegas. Maybe his folks were visiting Las Vegas and Zito's mother went into early labor while at a slot machine. :)

Some of the non-Cali notables on opening day roster:

DH: Durazo, Mexico
SP: Yabu, Japan
2B: Scutaro, Venezuela
2B: Ellis, South Dakota
CL: Dotel, Dominican Republic
P: Cruz as same above
RF: Bradford, Mississippi

This all that I could think of but I also said "some". Also, Adam Melhuse is from California, he was born in Santa Clara but raise in Paso Robles.

Hmm, interesting, South Dakota and Mississippi. Have we opened overseas baseball academies there?
