North Dakota’s Best Baseball Players

For a lot of people where we come from is a point of pride. When we meet someone who hales from the same place as us there is often a sense of comradery. If you were born and raised in North Dakota there hasn’t been much Major League talent but the two you do have were quality players.

One thought on “North Dakota’s Best Baseball Players

  1. North Dakotans will always take credit for Roger Maris. While he was born in Hibbing, Minnesota, his family moved to North Dakota when he was a child and he is known as being one of the state’s greatest high school baseball and football players. In a state with very few famous “exports”, Maris is always on the list … and since Hibbing already has Bob Dylan as a famous son, the least they can do is cede Maris to North Dakota.
