The Thursday Thinker: Hometown heroes

Near the left field entrance to Miller Park, there's a plaque commemorating Wisconsin natives who have played in the major leagues. There's not as many as you might expect: In fact, only nine players born in Wisconsin have played in a game for the Brewers. How many can you name in five minutes?

Again, here are the rules: Post your score in the comments, but do not comment on any specific answer until after 6 pm Central time, so everyone gets a chance to try it out without having it spoiled for them. And, of course, there's no reason to cheat here, because there's no prizes.

I suppose it's possible, but I doubt anyone will get them all: Five minutes isn't much time, and there's one guy on the list I'd never heard of. If you somehow manage to get them all, though, post your time along with your score in the comments.

Have fun, and don't forget to post your score in the comments!
