Hometown Stars

Our neck of the woods is now a breeding ground for baseball stars. Dustin Pedroia of the Boston Red Sox won the AL Rookie of the Year yesterday. This wasn’t unexpected, but it’s fun because he’s a Yolo County lad: he grew up in Woodland about 10 miles north of here, and graduated from Woodland High in 2001, a couple years after we arrived in Davis.

Meanwhile, C.C. Sabathia, who pitches for the Cleveland Indians, just won the AL Cy Young award. We actually live in Solano County, just on the other side of the border with Yolo County; C.C. Sabathia grew up at the western end of Solano County in Vallejo, graduating from Vallejo High.
