more geographical plunk records

Obviously we couldn't just look at which batters have been hit by the most pitches from each state and foreign country without also looking at which pitchers hold the records from each place - for total hit batters as well as plunking Biggio.

Here's the records for each location for all time hit batters, as well as the active leader at the end of 2006 - those who have plunked Biggio are in bold:

1-Jeff Nelson doesn't appear to be playing this year, so that leaves Jay Witasick (who has plunked Biggio) as the Maryland active leader.
2-Marlins Rookie Rick Vanden Hurk will be the active leader from the Netherlands as soon as he hits someone.
3-Keith Foulke has retired, leaving Brandon Claussen (another Biggio plunker) as the active leader from South Dakota
4-Danny Graves doesn't appear to be playing this year, leaving no active players born in Vietnam
5-Brad Radke retired after 2006, leaving Jarrod Washburn (45) as the active leader - although Kris Benson has plunked Biggio and is only 4 behind Washburn.



Of course some of the HBP totals for those who pitched over a hundred years ago may not match what you'll see on other sites, because those records are a little wacky from back then.

Hopefully, Roger Clemens knows that he needs to hit 10 more batters to pass Cy Young on the all time hit-batters list for pitchers born in Ohio, because that should have a big effect on when and where he decides to pitch this season. Also, someone needs to inform Curt Schilling that he lost the Alaskan plunk record to Shawn Chacon two years ago.

As you can see above, Biggio has been hit by the career plunk leaders from 9 states or foreign countries, and at the end of last year he had been hit by the active leaders of 16. In all, he's been hit by pitchers from 37 US States and 12 other countries. Below are the records for plunking Biggio by players born in each state/country:
