Yes, Loyal Readers, I am aware that several well-known men who grew up or lived in Ashtabula County have played in at least one Major League Baseball game.
However, the men who were literally born within the county lines are the subjects of my series, “From AC to MLB.”
Which means such luminaries as Brian Anderson and Jim French, who have been profiled through the years on these pages — and will certainly again — won’t be part of the series.
Anderson was born April 26, 1972 in Portsmouth, Virginia.
French was born Aug. 13, 1941 in Warren.
