Thanks to the sports-reference.com family of websites (and ESPN player profiles, league sites, and Wikipedia), I was able to find the birthplace of every American player currently in any one of the four major sports. Click on the buttons below for an animated look at where ...Read More...

Nationals (Gio Gonzalez) at Giants (Vogelsong), Game 4, Giants lead 2-1 (Advance to NLCS with win). 9 PM Eastern, FS1.
Right now he’s trending toward a World Series appearance.
The Arizona Fall League begins today. Other than the all star game, are any other games televised? I’ve looked for the info but can’t find a schedule.
