Ran across one of those clickbait lists of the best MLB player born in each state. I didn’t go through all 50 states, but I thought some of their choices were interesting. The best MLB player from Alabama wasn’t Hank Aaron, but that’s only because Willie Mays was also born in Alabama. And the best player from California was Ted Williams, over seemingly millions of others including Joe DiMaggio and Barry Bonds.
The best from Arkansas? I happen to agree with their choice, but there’s certainly room for debate. Who do you think it was, or who should it have been?
