Okay, so voting has started in MLB stadiums for the Hometown Heroes. My brother and I spent the
bulk of the early innings of Wednesday's Texas/New York game coming up with guys that ALMOST made the ballot for their respective teams:

Angels: Scott Sanderson and Gari DiSarcina
Astros: Eric Anthony and Billy Doran
A's: Eric Fox and Troy Neal
Blue Jays: Felipe Crespo and Ed Sprague
Braves: Rafael Belliard and Terrell Wade
Brewers: Jamie Navarro and Bill Wegman
Cardinals: Geronimo Pena and John Mabry
Cubs: Rick Wilkins and Andre Thornton
Devil Rays: Brent Abernathy and Rolando Arroyo
Diamondbacks: Greg Swindell and Gregg Olsen
Dodgers: Carlos Perez and Tim Wallach
Giants: Mike Aldrete and Kurt Manwaring
Indians: Alex Cole and Oddibe McDowell
Mariners: Phil Bradley and Reggie Jefferson
Marlins: Orestes Destrade and Nigel Wilson
Mets: Rafael Santana and Anthony Young
Nationals/Expos: Hubie Brooks and Mel Rojas
(honorary nod to Jeff Juden)
Orioles: Leo Gomez and Todd Frowirth
Padres: Quilvio Veras and Keith Comstock
(remember the error card from 198(8?) Topps?)
Phillies: Rob Ducey and Tommy Greene
Pirates: Josias Manzallino and Stan Belinda
Rangers: Jack Voight and Craig Lefferts
Red Sox: Phil Plantier and Marty Barrett
Reds: Roberto Kelly and Willie Greene
Rockies: Kurt Manwaring and Bill Swift
Royals: AJ Hinch and Jose Rosado
Tigers: Milt Cuyler and Matt Nokes
Twins: Denny Hocking and Brent Gates
White Sox: Mike Caruso and Jamie Navarro
Yankees: Randy Velarde and Mel Hall

A special tip of the hat to Kurt Manwaring and Jamie Navarro for making the list on two different teams.

And thanks to countless wax packs of mid/late 1980s Fleer and Toops cards for making the task easier.
