SAN FRANCISCO, Ca. – California, Florida and Texas are generally the leaders when it comes to producing Major League Baseball talent. So it should come as no surprise that the three states lay claim to the most players in the 2014 MLB playoffs.


The Golden State leads the way with 40 players, followed by Florida's 27 and 19 from Texas. Arizona is the only state other than California to have a school that has more than one alum in the postseason.
