Famous Major League Baseball Players from Tampa Clearwater and St. Petersburg FL

Florida is quite the incubator for professional athletes and talented performers in many leagues like the NFL, Major League Baseball, WNBA, and others.  This post will focus on the MLB players who were born in our fair state, which not only produces great players but has the ideal climate for outdoor practices and games in the early season when athletes in colder regions are still dealing with freezing temperatures and possibly even snow.

That said, the list of players who have come from Florida all-time is massive, so we’ll focus on the area closest to home for us, the Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg FL region, and some of the best ballplayers from these parts!  We think you’ll be surprised – or amazed at – how many players you recognize.
