On Monday, I wrote a piece in which I divided the United States into 50 states of equal population. Today, I’m dividing the country up in order to evenly distribute a small segment of its population: professional athletes.
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 and when the players in each sport were born.

A painting I’ve always admired, a popular subject for jigsaw puzzles and the like. #8 in the painting is catcher Sammy White, not Frank Sullivan as the article suggests. The focus of the picture is Jackie Jensen looking up in quizzical welcome. Ted Williams (who as the article explains did not pose for the picture) provides a subtext, giving The Rookie a furtive side glance while said Rookie doesn’t even notice him.
Thanks to spike, who linked to a linked story in the OTP thread.
