I'm from the mountains of eastern Kentucky so when an MLB from that area shows up I have to point him out. There have been very few players from that area. Willie Blair is one of them. When I looked him up on Retrosheet I was surprised to see that he hung around for eleven years (1990-2001) in the majors. He pitched for a bunch of teams and had a 60-86 record with a 5.04 ERA. He is/was from Paintville,KY the same town of former SF Giant Johnnie LeMaster. The only other player I can think of that played in the majors that is from the mountains of KY was Earle Combs. He was by far the best. He played on those great 20's Yankee teams and was a fine CF for them.

I thought Johnnie LeMaster was from Portsmouth. (Maybe he was born there.)

I usually recognize the old names, but not this one. He must had a good eye and little else...

I didn't recognize him, either. Ususally, I'm pretty good with some of the older names--I may not have realized that they played for the Reds, like Walt Dropo in '58, or Bob Skinner, Charlie Neal, and Daryl Spencer in '63, but at least I have heard of them. I had no recollection of this guy. Of course, it appears that he was 1958's version of Keith Gordon or Mike Frank (two guys that I have heard of only because I was actually alive and a fan at the time they played).

Yep.

He was a Cuban guy that played on the Reds AAA affiliate in Havana, the Sugar Kings.

Wiki says he currently resides in Paintsville. I'm very positive he played his HS baseball there. Maybe someone else out there knows for sure.
