maybe the first German citizen...certainly not the first German...and Id be surprised if no other German born but naturalized players weren't somewhere in the games early history...tons of German ancestry in the early years thru WWII. Heinie Groh...HeiniePeitz...lots and lots of others....would be interesting to research.
