Then we are from the same area. My younger brother was high school teammates with Justin Upton at Great Bridge High School. B.J. went to Greenbrier Christian, both schools in Chesapeake.
Nice!

There was quite a crop of baseball players that made it to the MLB from this area.

David Wright, Zimmerman, the Uptons, and the first one was
Michael Cuddyer.

My son played for Tallwood High School.
I was living in Chesapeake during my freshman year of high school. Went to Deep Creek that year. Don't think there were any famous baseball players in my class, but I did go to school with DeAngelo Hall (NFL cornerback).

The whole Hampton Roads region seems to be a good source of skilled athletes.
It sure does.

Alonzo Mourning, Bruce Smith, Alan Iverson....
