The California Team
OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: The California Team
Likely Opening Day Roster:
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?
What about the pitchers..???.that'd be interesting.

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.

yeah but B zito grew up in Cali...San Diego...right?

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.
