geographical plunk records

You probably already knew that Craig Biggio is only 6 HBPs away from the all time record for being hit by pitches, and you probably could figure out that he currently holds the record for being hit by pitches for people born in the state of New York. But, did you know that Jason Varitek entered this season 9 HBPs away from the all time record for people born in Minnesota? Or that Scott Rolen (90 HBPs) broke the Indiana record last year passing Cy Williams (86 HBPs)? Also, Shea Hillenbrand broke the record for people from Arizona previously held by Solly Hemus. Hemus had 62, but Hillenbrand had 68 by the end of '06. Gary Sheffield (119) broke Andre Dawson's (111) record for Florida born players in 2005, but Luis Gonzalez (107) and David Eckstein (104) are right behind him.
Also, Edgar Renteria needs just 1 more plunk to break the Columbian record, and Orlando Cabrera was just 8 behind him at the beginning of this year. Geoff Jenkins needs only 3 more HBPs to become the leader for those born in the state of Washington.


Here are the all time and active leaders for HBPs by state or country of birth, as of the end of the 2006 season:
