The Best Baseball Player Of All-Time From Each State

South Dakota: Keith Foulke


A native of Ellsworth Air Force Base, SD, Foulke made a name for himself as a closer. From 2000-04, Foulke converted 162 save opportunities. With the A’s in 2003, Foulke registered 43 saves en route to a 7th place finish for the Cy Young, and 15th for the AL MVP.

Delaware: Delino DeShields


Before his son made it to the show, Delino “Bop” DeShields was drafted by the Montreal Expos in 1987. DeShields enjoyed a good rookie season, finishing second in the RoY vote. As a third year player DeShields received MVP consideration for the only time in his career, finishing 16th. The versatile fielder finished his career with 561 RBI and 463 SB.

Montana: Dave McNally


Dave McNally made the town of Billings very proud over the course of his career. As a 19-year-old McNally made a dream-like debut — 9.0 IP, 2 H, 4 SO, 3 BB, 0 ER. The victory was the first of 184 career wins for the long-time Oriole pitcher. McNally was a three-time All-Star and two-time World Series champion with the franchise.
