**Mike Trout**of New Jersey,**Paul Goldschmidt**of Delaware, and**Bryce Harper**of Nevada,**Shane Victorino**of Hawaii. Other states like Pennsylvania have declined in recent years they have had 17 hall of famers and 258 all-star game visits all time but their current players only have had 1 all star visit by Devon Mesoraco, and almost certainly no hall of famers. Massachusets has had 12 HOFers and now their best players are**Chris Capuano**and**Steve Cishek**.California blows all other states away with 186 players this season. San Diego alone has more players than 28 of the states (11 players) including

San Diego has 15 all-star visits by their current players this is more visits than 45 of the**states'**current players have.
