by Bill Chuck on November 1, 2012

Our hearts and minds are focussed on New York City and New Jersey these days.

A gift of any size supports the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross whether it’s responding to a disaster, collecting lifesaving blood, teaching skills that can save a life, or assisting our military members and their families.

You can help people affected by disasters like Superstorm Sandy by making a donation to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief. DONATE NOW.

Truth be told, every time I hear (or read) a story about the hardships in Hoboken, NJ and I hear the name of its mayor my ears perk up. Her name is Dawn Zimmer.

Here are the nine players, born in Jersey, who have played the most games in the majors:
