    Tampa

    More baseball players than I can remember:
    Tony LaRussa
    Lou Piniella
    Fred McGriff
    Tino Martinez
    Luis Gonzalez
    Doc Gooden
    Gary Sheffield, the list goes on...

    Some say the birthplace to professional wrestling (Championship Wrestling from Florida):

    Eddie and Mike Graham
    Hulk Hogan
    Randy Savage, plenty more

    A ton not from here who end up living here (Jeter, lot's of retired NFL, PGA, etc.). Sunshine, beaches full of trim and no state income tax. What's not to like. Legalize gambling and all will be right in the world

    Zeke Sinicola, a schoolboy basketball legend in New York City who went on to become an all-American at Niagara University before joining the Fort Wayne Pistons of the National Basketball Association .....Family, friends and former teammates have long theorized that Sinicola’s brief and unproductive professional career was related to his having grown up on Pleasant Avenue, a mob-controlled six-block stretch along the East River where gambling was a way of life.
