Amarillo Texas

I'm in Amarillo Texas today on business. Surely I can get a blog post out of this. Well I did but it's not as interesting as I'd hoped it would be. Amarillo is about as far from Houston as I can get and still be in Texas. How many major league players were born here?Turns out, according to, none.

Current Royals manager Trey Hillman was born here in 1963. Although he played three years in the minors (1985-1987) he never made it to the bigs.
If Victor Black makes it to the majors, he'll be the first Amarillo player to do so.
Black was the #1 draft pick for the Pirates in 2009. He played in single A ball last year, posting a 1-2 record with 1 save in 13 games. He doesn't seem to have any stats so far in 2010.
