Yes, but born in NY, which is why it's probably not as big of a deal. Plus, although he grew up in Germany, I believe it was on a U.S. military base (or something to that effect). So, we're not exactly talking about someone with Dirk Nowitzki's background or it would certainly be a bigger deal.
Of note, Dirk tweeted Lutz to congratulate him after his first MLB hit as you might know.
