Former NHLer Guy Hebert is from the Albany area. What do you define as upstate? I'm in the Hudson Valley, which NYC considers upstate, LOL.

How do you define "from"?  Born in?  Raised/Grew-up in?  Lived in?   I think of it as born and raised at least until they graduate/leave high school.

Johnny Evers, Troy
Tim Christman, Oneonta. Played in one MLB game, 21 April 2001.  I know of this one personally.

You can also go to each sport category and Browse by Birth State to find all the athletes.  In baseball alone, there are 2,079 players listed under New York.

I may have to look into any athletes from just my local area of NY.

@Billy Kingsley I consider the Hudson Valley upstate. So I'll add them.

@C2Cigars I'm going by birth. I'll fix the list title.

@awmckenz I completley forgot about him! Thanks for the reminder.

I am from Orchard Park, NY and I love the list.  Here are a couple more from the Buffalo area.  Some of them on the list say Buffalo, but I believe some are actually from Buffalo suburbs.  Not sure if that matters to you.


Rob Gronkowski, and I believe a few of his brothers are from Amherst

Joe Hesketh is from Lackawanna

Ron Jaworski from Lackawanna

Mike Mamula from Lackawanna

Chad Kelly he went to high school in Buffalo, but you may need to verify.

Brian Knight I think Buffalo, but maybe a suburb

Don Majkowski

 I think he is from Depew, but his cards say Buffalo(and oddly enough, a few of his card across sets say from Buffalo and not Buffalo, NY)

Clifford Robinson from Buffalo

Christian Laettner Buffalo, but maybe a suburb

Patrick Kane from South Buffalo

Patrick Kaleta from a suburb of Buffalo

I believe Warren Spahn was from Buffalo

These are the firsts off the top of my head.  I’ll keep thinking, I know there are more.

@herkojerko I have him on the list. Go to page 4, he should be there.

Phil McConkey, he was a Buffalo guy.

I love your list, but I'm probably biased. Anyway, I have two more football players you can add: Dorsey Levens (running back for the Green Bay Packers) is from Syracuse and Dean Biasucci (kicker for the Colts in the late 80s and early 90s) is from Niagara Falls. 

Jan 11, 2019 - 3:34PM

@muskie027 I'll add him.

@MoPack626 I'm glad you like the list! I'll add both of them.
