Bill: Great reading list.
No Irish-born player since 1945?
What about players with Irish passports? (like me)
Then again, Ty Kelly plays for Israel, via his mom.
Roger Connor -- most home runs before Babe Ruth. His manager referred to "my Giants!" Hence I understand the fierce and annoying loyalty of two almost-uncles with Irish names who ragged me in 1951 and 1954 and whenever the Giants beat the Dodgers.
Enjoy the day.
George
