delawarean in baseball

It wasn't too long ago that Kevin Mench was sending baseballs into orbit from Delaware. Now he is raising a ruckas in Texas. There are a few major leaguers from Delaware, but none of them have caught the attention of fans in quite they way that Kevin Mench has in Arlington.

Maybe I'm being selfish, and want to see a Delawarean succeed the way the Kevin Mench is beginning to for the Rangers, but I'm hoping that the daily talks scheduled next week between players representatives and owners can keep a strike from happening, and give this Delaware native the chance to turn Texas into a launching pad.
