List of locals

Here are the locals I could find currently active in professional baseball. We decided to expand it to include major-league players this year.

If you know someone who's in extended spring training, they don't count yet. If you know someone I'm flat missing, politely e-mail me or politely list him in a blog comment.

This is the roster that will be in Sunday's paper, but the list can change next week.

Class AAA
Brian Bass, Montgomery -- Rochester (Twins)
Chris Booker, Monroeville -- Columbus (Nationals), we're including him this year. What the heck?
Class AA
Michael Nix, Auburn -- Mississippi (Braves), a note I'll hunt down next week
Bill White, Alexander City -- Frisco (Rangers), though Louisville, Ky., is listed as his residence by Frisco, we'll keep him
Wesley Wright, Grady -- Jacksonville (Dodgers), went to Goshen High, lives in Grady
Class A
Brandon Dickson, Marbury -- Quad Cities (Cardinals)
Tyler Wilson, Andalusia -- Rome (Braves)

Major leagues
Marlon Anderson, Prattville -- L.A. Dodgers
Class AA
Craig Brazell, Montgomery -- Wichita (Royals)
Jai Miller, Selma -- Carolina (Marlins)

A changed name slipped through. Marbury's Cory Meachum is now Cory Rauschenberger and he's with Class AA Springfield (Cardinals).
