Kosmo isn't all of a sudden going to proclaim anything nonsensical, such as Michigan is all of a sudden America's hotbed for producing Major League baseball talent.
As long as there are such things as snow and ice, that'll never be the case.
However, recent proof has been given that you can't completely ignore our state in terms of baseball talent.
Former Brother Rice standout D.J. LeMahieu, who was the Mr. Baseball Award winner in 2007, was called up to play for the Cubs in June, completing a fast rise to the majors after success in the minors.
Kosmo still remembers hearing about all the monster numbers LeMahieu was putting up at Brother Rice, so to see him shine at LSU and now in the majors is quite something.
In addition, Arizona has a pitcher from the state named Josh Collmenter. He was a member of those national powerhouse teams from Homer in the middle of last decade that not only put that tiny little community in the national spotlight, but also the state as well.
These two examples go to show that no matter how much snow, ice and cold there is, Michigan can still be home to some fine baseball players.
