Cincinnati Sends Disproportionate Number To Fenway

As pointed out by Bill Ballou of The Worcester Telegram, an astounding 23 Cincinnati, Ohio natives have been affiliated in some way (mostly as players) with the Boston Red Sox. Twenty-three. Of course, the most recent is budding star Andrew Benintendi—who attended Madeira High School in The Queen City. Some other notable Red Sox to hale from Cincy were: Kevin Youkilis, Tim NaehringDon Zimmer, Clyde Vollmer, Jack Bushelman, Jeff Russell, Russ NixonAdam Hyzdu, Scott Sauerbeck, Jim Leyritz, Tuffy Rhodes and Tommy Helms. Is it something in the (dirty) water?
