Also not sure, I may be forgetting someone, but I believe this is the first guy from the Defiance 6 county area to get to the majors as a position player. The rest that I know of(Billingsley, Niese, Scott Taylor, Ned Garver, Doug Bair, Bruce Berenyi, Chris Carpenter, Chad Reineke, Denny Stark) were all pitchers.

Yeah, before my time. Wonder why no one really talks about him though?
And now that I look on baseball-reference I notice him and see Leipsic as home town. Not even sure how I overlooked that. Still, for someone to get to the bigs from this area as an everyday player is rare and I hope Marc has a nice long career.
