Greater Cincinnati/NKY MLB All-Stars

Twol local high school products made the All-Star team this year: Andrew Benintendi, Royals, (Madeira) and Kyle Schwarber, Phillies (Middletown).

That got me thinking about all the former high school baseball players from the area that became MLB All-Stars. What a list. What a team we could field.
The following list includes 27 players that were named to the MLB All-Star team at least once in their career. I'd put this team up against any other region in the country.

1B: Pat Tabler (McNicholas), Leon Durham (Woodward)

2B: Josh Harrison (Princeton)

SS: Barry Larkin (Moeller), Eddie Brinkman (Western Hills)

3B: Mike Schmidt (Fairview), Buddy Bell (Moeller), Kevin Youkilis (Sycamore), Don Zimmer (Western Hills)

OF: Dave Parker (Courter Tech), David Justice (Covington Latin), Ken Griffey Jr. (Moeller) Jimmy Wynn (Taft), Lance Johnson (Princeton), Andrew Benintendi (Madeira)
